By  | 


Danny Hogg, the man who tagged D.C. with “Cool ‘Disco’ Dan” has died this week.

Renowned for his signature — Cool “Disco” Dan — the marking was visible on just about any surface throughout the D.C. in the late ’80s and early ’90s.

According to Roger Gastman, the artist and filmmaker who co-directed the documentary The Legend of Cool “Disco” Dan — Hogg, 48 years old, passed away on Wednesday due to complications from diabetes.

While few actually knew who Cool “Disco” Dan was, Hogg immersed himself in art and drawing as a young child, and his struggles with mental health issues and homelessness are discussed in the aforementioned documentary, but also explores how Cool “Disco” Dan was very much a part of D.C.’s culture and history.
