Brian Hooper, the bass player for Beasts of Bourbon, has lost his battle with lung cancer.

Brian played on four of the six Beasts of Bourbon albums including the 2007 reunion record ‘Little Animals’. He also played at the 2013 shows to mark the 30th anniversary of the band. His final performance was last Friday at his own benefit show at The Prince Bandroom in St Kilda.

Brian was being treated for lung cancer at Melbourne’s Peter MacCullum Hospital after being diagnosed in 2017.

In a statement his family said today:

Dear All

Brian’s ship peacefully sailed this morning. 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 s free bird in the blue sky.

Ava, Charlize, Matthew, Nina and Lana are all grieving the loss of their beautiful father. The Haddad and Hooper family are also experiencing their pain.

Cinzia Cozzolino and Michelle Rowe also cherish their memories of Brian.

Thank you for the support.

Xxxxx
