One of my favourite solos. RIP Danny.

He was my friend, faithful and just to me
I don't like that man. I must get to know him better.

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.

feat THE TOM ROBINSON BAND + very special guests

Scala, London - 29th July 2019
Tickets from --> bit.ly/anightfordanny

Danny Kustow - whose guitar playing was a key ingredient of the Tom Robinson Band hits Up Against The Wall, Don't Take No For an Answer and 2-4-6-8 Motorway - died unexpectedly at the age of 63 this year at the Royal United Hospitals in Bath after a short illness.

Danny's friends, family and former bandmates have organised a concert in his memory to take place at The Scala in London. "A Night For Danny Kustow" featuring the Tom Robinson Band plus special guests will take place on Monday July 29th. The lineup will include members of both the original and current TRB lineups, plus video footage of Danny playing on stage at his incendiary best.

Tom Robinson said: "Danny was one of the most gifted British guitarists of the entire punk generation. Four decades after the early TRB records he made with Mark Ambler, Dolphin Taylor and myself, his legacy is still remembered with warmth and wonder by fans around the world. This concert will be a chance for all of us to remember that legacy with huge affection and deep appreciation. His death has been devastating loss for everyone who knew him."

All profits from the show - plus a bucket collection afterwards - will be donated to the NHS Critical Care Unit in Bath which looked after Danny during his final days.
