Guardian article on Django

Nice little article on Django in one of the big UK papers--always nice to see recognition in the mainstream press!
I've always loved Jeff Beck's playing(best version of 'Goodbye Pork Pie Hat' ever.. after Mingus anyway) but you've got to love him even more after this quote about Django:

"by far the most astonishing guitar player ever ? Django was quite superhuman, there's nothing normal about him as a person or a player"

Somehow i doubt whether the much mooted 'Hollywood' film will ever materialise however....Johnny Depp is way too normal.....
