Recorded live at Matt Barnes & Jann Browne’s wedding. Danny & three other wedding guests (some of whom had never met) took the stage and pulled this off pretty well—there might have been some drinking involved.
'Are You Listening Lucky'
Danny on lead guitar with Chris Gaffney & The Cold Hard Facts. Recorded live at The Swallows Inn, San Juan Capistrano, CA.
"Ott comes off as a guitar hero of the first degree, able to serve up everything from flashing acoustic runs to notes that fall like teardrops on a honky-tonk floor. A marvelous player, he has more delicious tones and shadings at his disposal than a gambling cheat has face cards...his sizzling soloing simultaneously rings like a bell and tears like a saw."

Danny plays electric slide & acoustic guitars & sings harmony vocal on this track from Dave Alvin's CD 'Eleven Eleven'.
