“Django Reinhardt was arguably the greatest guitarist who ever lived, an important influence on Les Paul, Charlie Christian, B.B. King, Jerry Garcia, Chet Atkins, and many others. Handsome, charismatic, childlike, and unpredictable, Reinhardt was a character out of a picaresque novel. Born in a gypsy caravan at a crossroads in Belgium, he was almost killed in a freak fire that burned half of his body and left his left hand twisted into a claw.

I do believe that Django Reinhardt is one of my favorite musicians, simply because of his skill and him being french. One of his best is "J'attendrai Swing" done in 1939, Music does not have to be recent to be good! Take Lil' Wayne's shitty guitar skills as an example.
Django Reinhardt (1910-53). At age 18 the legendary gypsy jazz guitarist suffered 1st & 2nd-degree burns covering half of his body. Drs. warned he would never play again due to his badly burnt left hand & that they would have to amputate his paralyzed right leg. Not allowing it he learned to both walk & play again & remains a cultural hero to maverick guitarists world-round who play his music as homage to the legendary architect of the "gypsy jazz" sound.

Django Reinhardt - Reinhardt is often regarded as one of the greatest guitar players of all time and was the first important European jazz musician who made major contributions to the development of the genre. After his third and fourth fingers were paralyzed when he suffered burns in a fire, Reinhardt used only the index and middle fingers of his left hand on his solos and invented an entirely new style of jazz guitar technique.
