To all Danny Gatton fans:

I am busy working on The Official Danny Gatton web site, under the
approval and assistance of Danny’s mom Norma, to honor the memory of my
good friend.

The pages will be changing and expanding as more information becomes
definite, more pictures get scanned, etc.

Please send any comments/suggestions to me via email at:


Hope you enjoy!

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.
