    I did a search and couldn't find a previous post of this. Apologies if duplicate..

    This is an online video of Danny Gatton's 1991 perfromance on Austin City Limit's (aired in 1992).

    Clicky Clicky

    Absolutely stunning player. Watch for the last song, where he plays slide using a full beer bottle....

    Just thought I'd share.

    I saw Danny Gatton once in Atlanta a couple of years before he died, and he was phenomenal. He did the slide with the full beer thing, but I walked away thinking he could play absolutely anything in any style and sound incredible. If I'd lived in the DC area back then I would have gone to see him over and over again. What a loss.

    There's a site where you can find a bunch of his videos, including the beer/towel act from austin city limits. There's also this amazing jazz/funk studio cut where he just kills it. I don't know the exact address of the site, I'll have to ask my brother when I see him, he'll know for sure. I'll post it when I find it.
