Daniel Stewart MacMaster (July 11, 1968 – March 16, 2008) was a Canadian singer, who was lead vocalist for the Canadian/British hard rock band Bonham.

Career[edit]

With Bonham, he released two albums: 1989's The Disregard of Timekeeping (which peaked at Number 38 on the Billboard charts) and 1992's Mad Hatter. In 2001, Daniel was looking to put a new project together, starting with locally accomplished guitarist Stefano Fantin, and a string of small club dates were performed in the Barrie area, though, due to musical differences, parted ways. In 2005, Daniel released a solo album entitled Rock Bonham...And The Long Road Back which was re-issued by Suncity Records in 2006.[1] In recent years, MacMaster started a new project with Connecticut-based singer/songwriter Jimmy D of the band Emerald Monkey, dubbed Monkey-MacMaster. The group was planning on releasing music and playing shows. Additionally, MacMaster had been working on his own material.

Death[edit]

MacMaster died from a Group A streptococcal infection, at Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, on March 16, 2008.[2] He was married and had two children, Kaleb and Aryanna.
