Remembering Danny Gatton

Twenty years ago in October, 4th in 1994, Danny Gatton succumbed to his inner demons and committed suicide. He was known as the word's best unknown guitar player, because he rarely played his non-commercial music outside the Washington, DC area or " The Humbler" for his his modest manners. He mastered several styles from country, blues, jazz to rockabilly and possessed jaw-dropping abilties, talent and imagination. In this clip he picked a red hot medley with his Tele and a Twin Reverb, but he was equally at home with ballads. I guess, he was that kind of person you want to hang out with, trade a lick or two, share a beer and talk shop about his second passion, vintage cars. Just love him.

" Danny Gatton, a wonderful man who will live forever in the hearts of guitar players everywhere."
