Talk:Dan Hickey

From This Might Be A Wiki

So does anyone know what Dan Hickey has been up to recently? I miss him.

yea whyd he leave?

Found Dan's page on IMDB ( Looks like he is doing some movie work (and some acting in the past as Ball Player #1). Is this appropriate material for this wiki? - JasonT 21:48, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Yes but why did he leave TMBG?

Any update on this? thevince 24 May 2007

Why he left[edit]

The scuttlebutt I heard was that he was quote "not respecting the hierarchy of the band." Whatever that means. I miss him tooooooooo. Marty, pshaw. --Self Called Nowhere 16:46, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Is that really why he left TMBG? :( -- Jason DeLima - ! - 20:19, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
Like I said, totally unsubstantiated rumor I mean I don't think there's really a way to verify something like that for sure but that's what I heard from people who know people. At the time I interpreted as meaning wanting to be involved with songwriting or something like that and they didn't want him to, but now they got everybody writing stuff for the kids' albums, so that's lame if it's what it means. --Self Called Nowhere 20:23, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, the Johns are clearly delighted by Marty on a personal level (6 or 7 shout-outs/spotlights per show, quoting him often on Twitter, even writing songs about him now) but Hickey was a better drummer. Oh well, who knows what goes on behind the scenes. --Oddjob 11:36, 20 March 2012 (EDT)
I always wondered if there was a differing opinion on being openly political. Marty came in around the time the band made their opinion on the 2004 presidential election clear. Someone asked about Dan Hickey on the Twitter a while back and there did not seem to be any hard feelings, at least. thevince 4 April 2012
Based on who Dan follows on Twitter, I don't think he was politically out of step with the band at all. Museumofidiots (talk) 10:25, 14 January 2019 (EST)

What the heck is wrong with you people? I mean, I miss Dan too, but what's wrong with Marty?
I actually really really really miss the Band Of Dans, but I love Marty just as much. -User:Flansfan

Wasn't there some talk of a book about his time as a drummer? Whatever happened with that? I remember a funny bit with the Giants going at great lengths to avoid being photographed with Weird AL. (Mr Tuck)

You're thinking of Brian Doherty. -TDK (talk) 13:11, 5 August 2015 (EDT)

Thanks. Doesn't appear that he's published his book though... (Mr Tuck)
