This is very difficult to write and it may be too soon, but due to Hogan's popularity here I feel the need to put this up so the community can know. Hogan (Charlie) was killed in a car crash earlier today. His sister posted this in WAYDRN
Hello Rock Band crew,

I'm the sister of the guy you know as Hogan2000 aka (Charlie). I just wanted to say he was in a car crash a little over an hour ago. .He was rushed to the hospital and right now we don't know the status of what's going on. I was just going through his phone and I seen where he had logged into the Rock Band site. I just thought I let his friends know what's going on. Please keep him in your thoughts as we update you on his situation. Thank you Rock Band crew.
She later posted Charlie had passed.

Charlie was a beloved member here in our Rock Band world. He was one of those guys that got attention with every post. I know he was actually one of HMX's favorite posters as well. I think I can speak on behalf of the community when I say our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and we'll miss him.

    This is so awfully sad. I don't post on here that much, but I read almost everything. Hogans post were always entertaining. It's weird how you can feel like you know someone without ever meeting them. He will certainly be missed by these forums. I'll be playing some Cinderalla tonight in his honor, as I remember how excited he was when that pack was announced. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

    To be honest I've been having that feeling too, due to previous experiences with faked Internet deaths. But at the same time I'm willing to put that idea away since, for all I know, he is most likely passed.

    And one of the last songs he played was A Tout Le Mond... :(

    I noticed that. Unfortunately that something most of us won't get to do, say goodbye. I just went back through some of his favorite songs, including this one, and played them in RB for him.

    I... I never really talked to the guy but I'm REALLY gonna miss his presence here. A true bruther through and through, this is a tragedy for it to happen to anyone, but someone like Hogan... oh man.

    RIP pal

    I... I can't believe this has actually happened.... The forums won't be the same without him.

    From one bruther to another, may he rest in peace :'(

    My condolences to his family. Being the big wrestling fan that I am, I thought his posts were really funny. Thank you to his sister for thinking of those on these forums - if the family will be accepting donations in his memory to charity, I'll be happy to contribute.

    Hogan's posts always made me laugh and smile, he seemed like such a warm and genuine man and Im so sorry to read he is no longer with us.

    "Smile when you think of me"....so fitting.

    Rest in peace bruther.

    My feelings as well. Honestly, I'd rather it be a hoax.

    You'll be missed bruther.

    I don't post here much anymore, so how incredibly unfortunate that the day I return brings such unfortunate news. Hogan always made me laugh. Heck, even when he was getting on the nerves of everyone else, that somehow endeared him to me even more. I smiled at just about every dude, bruther and pal that he added to his witty replies. I never knew him outside of the site, but our short interactions here gave me the impression that he was a good guy, and definitely a much-loved member of the RB community. He will be missed by all, and certainly by me. R.I.P bruther.

    Just a memory...

    Hogan started posting here I think around Rock Band 3. He used the Hogan persona and about half the board loved it and it drove the other half nuts. (The boards were way more active back then). After a while he became a regular and started posting as himself, sans "bruther". Then, even the people who initially couldn't stand the joke got mad because he wasn't using it anymore. :p So from then on, even in his serious post, he would always work in a "bruther". :p

    I was one of the half driven mad by the 'bruther's. I went as far as trying to make an extension for my browser that would find and replace all instances of said words. but in the end it grew on me.

    He originally joined as himself, under his PSN name I do believe. He left that for Hogan, which developed after KiddyKev encouraged his "bruther" usage. It was game on by then.
