Wow!!!  What a guitar player.  I lived in D.C. in the early '80s.  Never heard of him.  My loss.

Props to Heath and Setzer but Gatton blows both of them away.

I was lucky enough to experience the Washington DC music scene during the late 70's while attending the University of Maryland.  So many great local bands that you could see almost any weekend in one of the many bars in the area.  The Nighthawks, Catfish Hodge, Danny Gatton, the emerging Go Go scene, Root Boy Slim if you really wanted to Boogie Til' You Puke!

As others have said, Danny was a one of a kind guitar player.

the events leading up to his suicide were strange, or I should say the last hour or so, 
I saw him live once, he could do literally anything he wanted to do on a guitar

Good lord, I know nothing about this man's place in music history (besides what I've gleaned from this comment board), but man oh man did I look up from my work. This guitar playing is off the hook, beyond comprehension...

Brilliant guitarist. Two friends who saw him play live around DC many times struck up a conversation with Danny after a gig and extracted a promise that he'd play at their wedding. Sadly I don't think it came to pass but apparently he was a good man with many friends. As I've posted on RP in another song's comment area, I went to a tribute concert for Danny at the Carter Barron Amphitheater in DC. It wasn't the most organized event, but years after Danny's death his friends were giving their all for him. His buddy Tom Principato still plays at the annual Takoma Park Street Festival in MD like clockwork.

Love this.
Just read a wonderful sentence in 'Anatomy of a Murder,' which was published in 1958. The protagonist, a small-town lawyer, hears a prisoner playing a guitar softly in jail, and he remarks that its nice to hear a guitar not being played as if it were a drum, for once.
