No Country For Old Men

Just to put a coda on our little discussion of the relative merits of Stevie Ray Vaughan the other day --

Here's Danny Gatton, sometime in the early 90s, just fooling around.

When the video runs out, after about six minutes, he still hasn't run out of ideas.

Gatton departed this world by blowing his brains out, for reasons that apparently remain mysterious. Also mysterious, at least to me, is how any guitarist can watch the above and not want to do the same.
