No argument here... whatsoever!

Danny Gatton, The Telemaster, was sometimes called the world’s greatest unknown guitarist. He seamlessly combined country, jazz, blues, and rockabilly influences with his own innovative virtuosity to create a deeply musical body of work. His admirers included Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, Steve Earle and his own childhood guitar hero Les Paul, and though his album 88 Elmira Street was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1990 he never achieved the commercial success or widespread fame that his talent and creativity so obviously deserved. People who knew him have suggested that he had an ongoing battle with depression that led him to commit suicide in 1994 at the age of 49


It's sad that he makes so few of these lists.

Both are very tragic stories, and should have a better ending, but luckily for those of us still here we have their music to listen to, which is a far better memorial than any monument could ever be.
