In the winter of 1993 Dan Hamilton became seriously and mysteriously ill, an unexpected turn for an apparently healthy, 3rd-degree black belt. He spent several months in the hospital while doctors did their best to figure out what was causing him to have the multiple physical complications that kept him from walking, playing, or singing his beloved music. Eventually he was diagnosed with a rare adrenal condition known as Cushing's syndrome. He died in Los Angeles in the early hours of December 23, 1994, at the age of 48.
