The overused term, "awesome" is fully justified here. They had a great musical synergy. Danny Gatton is sorely missed.

One of the most versatile, often overlooked, guitarists ever. I like 88 Elmira St., New York Stories, and Hot Rod Guitar-the anthology. Might have to sip a little bourbon in front of the fireplace this weekend and listen to "One For Lenny". Has anyone ever heard any of the posthumous releases Danny's wife has put out? William Clarke is another lost artist whose widow has released cd's on her own.
Rock solid time, crazy whole-tone and pedal steel licks totally honest guitar playing without relying on gimmicks.
True, but ironic. There was a time when Gatton was best known for his magic dingus box and looping tricks (that would sometimes confuse his own band). He basically shelved all that after he was accused of being too gimmicky (right after Redneck Jazz, IIRC) and generally played it straight thereafter.
