A guitar player, friend of mine told me sometimes ago about Danny Gatton. I always had a crush on rocking lead guitars and never heard about Danny.
My friend came back later with '88 Elmira Street'. I remember the first time I listened to this album. Each song had this same effect on me. A great tight Fender sound but no specific big difference with the other 6-strings wizards I already knew, until...
Simply put, just let these songs unfold. Just let this guy take his first chorus or lead and all of sudden pure magic appears. You'll understand what I mean.
Danny Gatton guitar crawls up your spine and if you don't get goosebumps when listening, I think you'd better switch your interest on another instrument!
They're not so many artists out there whose skills transcend known ways of using a tool or playing an instrument. Don't get me wrong: Danny Gatton was much more than a gifted guy putting on his incredible act. He was a true artist, showing the world his deep love for music with a Telecaster.
I don't think it's worth to write more about him of what you can read on internet. G00gle the name. Learn about The Humbler and his too short life.
Danny Gatton was a living proof, if you still need one yet, that huge talent and fame are not obviously bound to get along. - Morcles
