Cuttin’ In, Johnny “Guitar” Watson (1961)
John Watson Jr. came from a musical family, and when he was 11, his grandfather offered to give him a guitar if, and only if, the boy didn’t play any of the “devil’s music.” His recording career spanned forty years; his highest charting single was A Real Mother for Ya (1977). Frank Zappa: “Watson’s 1956 song ‘Three Hours Past Midnight‘ inspired me to become a guitarist.” Many others were influenced as well.
