The title of this song has a sort of double meaning. It was originally intended to phonetically spell out the name ‘Danny’ as if it were humorously pronounced by someone with an exaggeratedly thick, middle-American accent. It also suggests that the song is about a blood relative connected to me through genes, which makes sense because Danny was my uncle.
Out of five siblings, he was my mother’s youngest brother which made him less than seven years older than me. Therefore, we grew up together as brothers and best friends instead of the more traditionally common, ‘older uncle and nephew’. We went everywhere and did everything together. We influenced each other. He turned me on to Dylan, Clapton and the ‘Dead, and I taught him how to actually play their songs on guitar. Working Class Hussys Music.
