One of my favourite solos. RIP Danny.

Tom Robinson announced DK's death on his show on BBC 6 Music this afternoon.
Good choice above by DD.
Haven't heard that song for years but as soon as the track started playing the solo came back note for note in my head which is testimony to the memorability of the solo.

A very fine guitarist. Sad news. Expected a solid career after TRB slit, but it just didn't materialise.

Saw him with TRB several times in the late 1970s and always regarded him - along with John Perry of the Only Ones, Tom Verlaine of Television and John McGeoch of Magazine - as the supreme guitarist of the punk/new wave era.
