Danny Gatton: The Best Ever?
I had drinks last night with a top notch music scholar and gentleman who loves music profoundly. We talked about all kinds of music and he mention a name I had never heard before; Danny Gatton. He told me that this man was the greatest guitar player of all time...of all time, no questions asked. I love it when I hear about someone I've never heard before and I get a chance to discover them! So I came home tonight and went on Youtube and I think you can see through my skull at this moment. How the hell did I not know of this guy before? Plus this was after watching some of the greatest living guitarists who currently are alive at Clapton's Crossroad Festival today.
