I Get Up Again Brian Hooper Benefit Videos




Last Friday night, at the Prince Bandroom in St Kilda, the Melbourne music community came together as Brian Hooper played his trusty Fender bass guitar in a wheelchair for a benefit concert organised by friends and fellow musicians to raise much needed funds, as he battled lung cancer. Exactly one week later, we mourn the loss of yet another treasured Melbourne musician as Hooper sadly passed away at the tender age of 55.

Brian's partner, Ninevah Hooper made the following statement on Facebook.

“Brian’s ship peacefully sailed this morning. I was with him during that departure. It’s the hardest thing a partner could ever do but to say good bye. I told my three year old twins that mummy and doctors could no longer bring daddy home. Daddy was flying away like [a] free bird in the blue sky.”

Hooper was a popular musician of Kim Salmon & The Surrealists and as the bass player of one of Australia's most visceral rock bands, Beasts Of Bourbon. He also released three critically acclaimed solo albums and performed with Rowland S Howard, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Penny Ikinger, Spencer P. Jones, The Voyeurs and Charlie Marshall And The Body Electric.

Here are some videos from the I Get Up Again Brian Hooper benefit concert. This will be the last time we will see The Low Road lineup (Tex Perkins, Spencer P Jones, Brian Hooper, Charlie Owen and Tony Pola) of the Beasts Of Bourbon playing together live on stage.

There are also some live performances of Adalita, Gareth Liddiard and Kim Salmon & The New Scientists.
