Daniel Eldon Bowers

 

January 4th, 2016 - Sadly, we regret to inform our fans, friends and colleagues in the music industry that Ghostrider Bassist and founding member Dan Bowers has passed away following an eighth month battle with cancer.  Born at Halifax NS as Daniel Eldon Bowers on May 19th, 1956, he died peacefully at home in the early morning hours of December 31st, 2015 with his wife Pauline and son Daniel and daughter Krissy at his side.
 
Obviously, all of the members of the Ghostrider family are devastated by the loss of our dear friend and band mate, and will forever hold fond memories of the time spent with Dan in the rehearsal hall, on the stage, in the recoding studio and around the kitchen table. There was never a dull moment when Dan, The Bass Man, was around and he kept us all well entertained with his incredible wit and sense of humor and inspired by his passion for life and with his musical abilities, which were equaled only by his generosity and humility. 
 
Rest In Peace Brother...we look forward to being reunited at that “Great Gig in the Sky”.
