The best guitarist ever born. A gypsy who had his fingers burned in a fire. He had the use of a thumb and 2 fingers on his left hand, and (being brought up playing the banjo) switched to guitar. He then proceeded to made some of the most incredible music known to man.
He's best known for his work in a jazz group w/ Stephane Grappelli on the violin.
Listening to Django has made many a guitarist put the instrument down (sometimes for good) and just listen.
