For some reason his story has been tearing me up the last few days. Danny Gatton is one of my favorite players. Just unstoppable talent and creativity. When I think of a natural born guitar player he comes up near the top. Tommy Emmanuel and Chet are like that too...they really sound like they can make the guitar do whatever they happen to be thinking of. I sometimes contemplate the end of his life and how empty and sad it seems. I really believe that YouTube would have made him one of the biggest stars in the guitar world and if he had hung on for a few more years. His lifetime of work was about to pay out beyond his and his families imagination. Please don’t ever be like Danny Gatton. Life turns on a dime and you never know when you’ll be sitting on top of the world again...truly it will always have surprises for you. Keep an open heart and gratitude for whatever you have.
