Daniel Hutchens Of Bloodkin Suffers Hemorrhagic Stroke

There’s sad news out of Athens as Bloodkin co-founder Daniel Hutchens recently was hospitalized after suffering from a hemorrhagic stroke at home. Hutchens’ manager, Peter Jackson, has set up a Go Fund Me page to help raise funds for Daniel’s medical expenses. Daniel is a longtime friend of Widespread Panic, whose bassist shared a note about Hutchens’ health.

“Can’t Get High,” “End Of The Show” and “Who Do You Belong To?” are among songs written or co-written by Hutchens that are staples of Widespread Panic’s live repertoire. Here’s the text of Dave Schools’ note about his old friend:

Daniel Hutchens, Athens songwriter, Bloodkin co-founder, and longtime friend of Widespread Panic, has been hospitalized after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke while at home.

His manager Peter Jackson has set up a #gofundme page to help Danny with medical expenses…Please help if you can. And perhaps a great way to help is with some positive thoughts and a heaping helping of Danny’s music. So crank up some Bloodkin or any of Daniel’s excellent solo records!

I made a Spotify playlist of some of my favorite Danny Hutchens/Bloodkin songs called “Music By Daniel Hutchens.” Search my playlists for dashole.

Here’s the playlist:

Our thoughts are with Hutchens on a quick recovery.
