Additional Facts
The Telecaster master they called The Humbler was a guitar picker of remarkable virtuosity who wrenched a shimmering, blazing, twanging assault of sound from his guitar in a seamless blend of blues, jazz, rockabilly, country and rock ëní roll that was uniquely his own. If ever it could be said that they broke the mold when they created a guitar player, it was for Danny Gatton.

Yet for all his prowess, for all the new tangents he took off onto with his mind-boggling ideas for the guitar, real fame and real success eluded Danny Gatton for most of his career. What fame he did achieve came late and in small doses, tantalizingly close to the real recognition many thought he deserved.
