Unfinished Business: The Life and Times of Danny Gatton (Book)
Whether playing country, gospel, rockabilly, soul, or standards, local musician Danny Gatton wowed audiences with his incredible guitar technique. Hailed as the best unknown guitar player by both Rolling Stone and Guitar Player, he was a player's player who never received popular acclaim but continues to influence guitarists everywhere. The struggle to reach a wider audience while staying true to his own muse proved too much for him to bear, and in 1994 he took his own life. This book explores Gatton's "unfinished business" (the title of his greatest album) and completes the story of the man and his music, which elicited much praise for blinding speed, effortless genre-hopping, and flawlessly inventive technique. Photographs are included.[ Last Updated: 08-Feb-2016 | Hits: 100 | Reader Comments Report Problem
