That snarling, biting guitar sound of his really put the TRB on the map. RIP.

Just read this and what a shame. A really fine guitar player.

Damn, just read this myself -- a true dark horse of the punk era, but hard to imagine TRB making the impact it did without those screaming, high-end leads that defined Power In The Darkness, which remains one of my all-time faves. Check out his solos on Up Against The Wall and I Shall Be Released, to name two good reasons.

About a decade ago, I wound up e-mailing Danny, because I'd planned on writing an essay about that album, and hoped to get input from all the principals involved. He did respond, saying it was great that somebody still thought of him, and that he was hoping to find a great band that could use him. That was our only exchange, as subsequent emails bounced back, so I had to leave it there.

I ended up writing that essay, without input from anybody, about both TRB albums -- funny how that often happens -- plus my own recollections of seeing them during their reunion, at the then-Town & Country (11/89), and Subterania (4/90). Great nights both, undoubtedly helped by plenty of that screaming guitar. :mrgreen: RIP, Danny.
