During those years, he landed his first record deal with his band Hericane Alice on Atlantic records, appeared on MTV, toured the States, sharing the bill and the stage with some of the biggest names in rock during that time including, Whitesnake and Skid Row. Soon after, his next band "Medicine Wheel", recorded three albums and toured Japan. Of course, no band lasts forever (except maybe the Rolling Stones), his next project--Speak No Evil, recorded 2 albums for Universal Records, toured the States and opened some arena shows for such bands as Megadeth, Staind, and System Of A Down. To this day, he occasionally does a reunion gig with his brothers in arms, "Hericane Alice", and has also formed the "Danny Gill Band", which performs at different venues, clinics and expos, usually performing original songs and demonstrating the latest guitar gear and technology Danny uses.
