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.


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 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] Later, 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 in addition to MacMaster had been working on his own material. However, neither of these projects were completed due to MacMaster's death.


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.
