I only discovered Danny Gatton last week but I was wondering why he wasn't part of the top 5 glad to know you are going to write about him also did you. Consider Brad Paisly?


I'd have to check the date of this article, but it's old insofar as me being a writer goes. I'm not ashamed of this article. I super love everyone mentioned. I will say, however, were I to write this article today, it would likely be much much longer, and I'd have probably made it entirely about virtuoso players, leaving all other factors out of it.

Here's the deal: Any time anyone writes an article about 'Top 5' of anything, the thing is absolutely certain to leave out a lot of persons, or things which were every bit as good, and even possibly better (depending upon the measure of what is or is not better within confines of parameters, like fame, virtuosity, etc)

Keith Richards, for instance, is fantastic, super famous. He's even pretty hard to dislike, even if you don't like classic rock, everyone seems to appreciate how he's a pretty good guy and has been a huge influence in music. But is Keith even in the same league as Danny Gatton in terms of skill? Of course not.

I'm not sure I even really knew about Danny Gatton until much more recent years. Oh I'd read about him from my gigantic stack of guitar magazines dating back to the early 80s, but I don't truly recall having heard him play until I had a computer and the internet, and saw videos on Youtube.

So what I did was just try to promote the Telecaster from different angles. I figured Page should be in there because he was using a Tele for some stuff which was at least very close to early heavy metal. I also figured it would be cool to name someone who maybe others didn't know much about, and I had always especially loved the early Dwight Yoakam albums, and so I used Pete Anderson instead of Brad Paisley

I'd imagine my love of Dwight Yoakam also influenced including Buck Owens and Don Rich. I knew most people would remember Buck Owens, but maybe had forgotten Buddy Rich.
