Remembering Dan Hicks

Paying Homage to Dan Hicks - eTown

“We were so lucky to have had Dan Hicks on eTown twice, once in 2001 and once in 2009. His music was infectious – loose and tight at the same time, danceable, funny, poignant, smart. The last time he came, he asked me to play second guitar, so I got to learn some of his classic repertoire as well as some of the new tunes, both of which featured his unusual chord choices and song structure – fearless! He was ahead of his time and retro, an integral part of the 60’s San Francisco scene, and I feel fortunate to have met and played music with him.” – Nick Forster
