. . . true, true, true!
i've been living in fear of this moment for years on end . . . and now it finally happened. being a guitarist meself i owe so much to danny's influence: his exquisite playing, singing and - even more important - his remarkable feeling. he was, is and will always be one of my all-time fave blues guitarists of that era. ever since i learned about it, his sad story shook me real bad. what a great pity he never really recovered. heartbreaking news, indeed.
may you rest in peace, my dear soulmate!
