Wow! Peaceful journeys #CoolDiscoDan.
When I lived in DC, I saw his tag everywhere, but never really knew much about him. He was the central figure in this 2014 documentary about DC underground culture "The Legend of Cool 'Disco' Dan:" https://youtu.be/wvl6j7HE0UQ

- "With heavy hearts, we are saddened to report that Danny Hogg, known worldwide as Cool “Disco” Dan, passed away on July 26, 2017 due to complications from diabetes.
We are devastated by the tragic news of Dan’s untimely death. We are honored to have known Dan, to have been a part of his journey, and most of all to have been able to tell his story and call him a friend. His gift to DC is a life, a name, and a story that has taught us about where we come from and who we are. Even though Dan is no longer among us, he will always be a part of Washington DC.
Our heart goes out to his family, his friends, and to all of the Washington residents who understand the magnitude of his life and loss. More information will follow as we have it. You will be missed, Danny Hogg. And thank you.
December 31, 1969 – July 26, 2017
