Beasts Of Bourbon Bassist Brian Hooper Has Died

Solo artist and Beasts Of Bourbon bassist Brian Hooper has died, after being diagnosed with lung cancer last year.

Hooper, who also played with the likes of Nick Cave, Rowland S. Howard and Kim Salmon & The Surrealists, passed away this morning, his partner Ninevah Hooper confirmed in a statement (below) on Facebook.

“Brian’s ship peacefully sailed this morning,” she wrote. “I was with him during that departure. It’s the hardest thing a partner could ever do but to say good bye.

“I told my three year old twins that mummy and drs could no longer bring daddy home. Daddy was flying away like [a] free bird in the blue sky.”

Hooper, who first joined Beasts Of Bourbon in 1990, performed his final show with Beasts Of Bourbon at a Melbourne benefit concert held in his honour last week.

she was a great actress ... all class

I hear that she asked for no funeral, no memorial and no grave marker.

I guess she'd had enough of popularity

May she RIP

I hope that bitch who was running their brothels for them gets raped with a cactus.
