  • Description

    Tom Principato reminisces about Blazing Telecasters and Danny Gatton: Danny Gatton and I did this concert in a series of sporadic appearances around the Washington, DC area which we called Blazing Telecasters. I had already known Danny for about 10 years at that point, and he was well on his way to establishing himself as not only a dominant force on the Washington, D.C. guitar and music scene, but along with Roy Buchanan was earning a reputation as pretty much one of the two best guitarists D.C. had seen then or since. For me, I was just starting out as a solo bandleader. I had been playing around Washington in a number of different sideman situations, and now was very excited about having my own band, and writing my own musical agenda. I was itching to get out and spread my wings, meet some challenges, and try something new. One of the first things that I thought of was to try and coax Danny out of (semi-) retirement to play again, and have an opportunity to play with one of my heroes. Our common ground was the love of classic masters of the guitar like Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Les Paul, and Charlie Christian. All of these influences would come swirling out on stage at any given moment when we would play together...
