Those of you at the 1996 Chicago area shows will remember "Steely"
Dan Rinehart. He and his wife, Suzanne, had the huge white Montero sport
ute that we had a Danvention out of at Alpine on Aug. 3, 1996. Donald
and Walter were kind enough to meet with us, including Dan and Suzanne,
at the "Midwestern" World Theatre on Aug. 2, 1996.
emailed that Dan passed away overnight at a St. Louis hospital of leukemia.
Suzanne plans to bury him wearing the SD T-shirt D + W autographed for
him back stage at the World Theatre in 1996.
tells me that she has already been enjoying the bejeezus out of Two
Against Nature up there--I'm sure Dan is experiencing the same ecstasy.
email your thoughts, memories and condolences to Dan's Wife Suzanne
at firstname.lastname@example.org I am certain
that she would appreciate them.
definitely be missed, especially during this upcoming 2000 tour season.
