  Danny Gatton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Danny Gatton (September 4, 1945 – 4 October 1994) was a talented and enigmatic American guitarist who committed suicide at his Maryland home in 1994 while still relatively unknown to the public.
Gatton was born in Washington, DC on September 4, 1945.
Gatton's playing combined musical styles such as jazz, blues and rockabilly in an innovative fashion, and he was known by some as "the telemaster" or "the world's greatest unknown guitarist".

Gatton would famously dismiss the album as "so many different things with different guys who didn't play with us." That's true as far as the credits go, but it's also the diversity which makes this album such a fascinating listen.

Gatton's rapid-fire runs on such pieces as "Funky Mama" are balanced by the subtler pleasures of his version of The Beach Boys' "In My Room." Sadly, Gatton was even more troubled than Brian Wilson, and the guitarist took his own life four years after the release of this album.

 Danny Gatton : Untouchable - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Other Gatton albums may be more cohesive, but Untouchable actually works nicely as a companion to the Portraits collection.
The result is a typically diverting Gatton free-for-all; the first three tracks alone steer the listener through moody bop ("Poinciana," "One for Lenny's"), a tribute to late jazz guitarist Lenny Breau, and a storming R&B tune ("Ain't That Peculiar," which features a rousing Tommy Lepson vocal).
But that's hardly possible with Danny Gatton, as the inspired interplay with his hornmen on Nelson Riddle's "Untouchables" theme shows.

I spent a fair amount of time searching for a Danny Gatton CD and, to be honest, it was a little difficult deciding on something.
During the course of searching I also realized the reviews are often of limited use, since it appears there is a small, but very zealous, group of Gatton's fans and friends who always come out and give each and every CD of his a glowing review and five-star rating.
The guitar playing, supposedly Gatton's claim to fame, isn't all that impressive: More often than not, it is uninspiring and devoid of emotive power; technically it has moments, but without context that's little more than "guitar gymnastics" anyway.

Gatton’s legend has only grown since October 1994, when he ended his life, aged 49, by self-inflicted gunshot wound at his southern Maryland home.
According to Elliott, Gatton’s frustration over Hancock’s handling of the business side (“He got an office in Alexandria [Virginia], but didn’t have a phone for two or three months.”) also led him to pronounce the Fat Boys a dead issue by the summer of ’76.
“Danny just figured it was another of those promises that never came true, until he read about it in the paper or heard it on the radio,” says Elliott.
