Remington Ride - Danny Gatton
Great guitar player, came to a tragic end. As I frequently ask myself: why can't people just be happy? Some of us aren't made that way, like poor Danny.
But what a great guitar player! And all the way on the fun program too, just having a great time with his friends. The way he spins off onto wild, unexpected tangents he reminds me of Jeff Beck, except Danny's band can really keep up. The times I saw Jeff do it, he ended up playing on his own.
I find as I make my seemingly endless way through this life, so much time, so little to do, that I am forgetting things. Not having all of my archives handy doesn't help, on the scene I could reach out a hand and be reminded; here I can look something up on the 'Net but only if I know what I'm looking for. Who was that other Telecaster guy? Blond? Goatee? Shy fellow, but versatile and dynamic as a 'Tele slinger. It'll come to me. Maybe "roy" plus "telecaster" will do it.
