Goner Message Board / ???? / Get well soon Dana Hatch!!!

Cheater Slicks drummer & the man who is father to my god-children, Dana Hatch, suffered a heart attack last night. He's doing all right & apparently the ambulance was there in no time which helped a lot. There's minimal, if any, damage to the muscle, & he's optimistic he'll be out of the hospital in no time.

They won't be playing their 25th anniversary party on Saturday the 28th, I can't imagine they'll be going to NY in a month for those shows, & even the big festival in Raleigh later this summer seems highly unlikely. None of this is that important. I love that guy & his crazy family.

When you are out getting hammered tonight or any time in the future, raise your glass to him. He's given a lot for the madcap life & soundtrack we all love so much.

I'm so sorry to hear this! If I know Dana, he'll bounce back quickly. All my best wishes are with him and his family.

Dana is doing well. David visited him in the hospital yesterday and had very positive things to say about Dana's condition. Dana was very lucky and had excellent medical attention. We are very grateful for the outcome of a very scary event and thank everyone for sending support.

As far as our future gig schedule, which of course is not the important thing, Dana does not want any decisions made on future shows until he sees how he is progressing. So at this point the only show cancelled is the July27th anniversary show. We won't do any shows if Dana is not up to it, but he is being very positive and the doctors are positive as well that he should be up to normal activity within a month to 6 weeks. It is entirely Dana's decision, but we will make sure it's filtered by common sense as well. There's no use pushing something as serious as this, but it also very important to him to continue as normal and to be active again.

I'm trying to get the Bassholes and Obnox to keep the show on Friday the 27th, It would be great if they could keep the flame for us on this one and do it for Dana. I will update that later after a decision is made on their part.

Thanks again and I send love back from Dana and from all of us. He is strong and optimistic...and alive...that's the most important thing.

Just an update-
Dana is doing well and his prognosis is excellent. the doctors have run tests and his heart is in great shape, but needs recuperating time. He is leaving the hospital today.

We will not be doing the New York shows scheduled for August. Shows later than that are still up in the air.

Thanks for the support and the love.

Get better, shit. The man who sings "Erotic Woman" and "Tattoos Are Stoopid" needs to live to be at least 200 years old.

Apparently, they are playing the festival in Raleigh. I don't think I can make this one. Too much crap going on.
