Dan Warner was larger than life. He was a friend, a brother, a mentor, and one of the most talented individuals any of us have ever known. The impact he had on the music industry can be measured in the miles of credits he has, but the impact he had on the world was so much bigger. He made us all better.
Dan’s wife, Kim, and daughter, Taylor, have requested that those who would like to make a contribution do so in the form of a donation to Guitars Over Guns. Dan’s legacy will be honored through the Dan Warner Memorial Scholarship – providing deserving youth with no-cost music education and close mentoring relationships with professional musicians. These scholarships will be given to kids who otherwise would not have the opportunity to access music lessons or the support of a mentor.
Dan was a longtime supporter and friend of Guitars Over Guns, and it means the world to our organization to help preserve his name in this way.
