HAPPY BIRTHDAY OF THE DAY! 2-3-10
Johnny Guitar Watson, the original Gangster of Love, would have been 75 years old today. From his early raw, out of control guitar playing style to his sweet blues ballads to his funkier disco-ier 70's records, Johnny had many worthy landing points in his career and inspired tons and tons of guitarists from Hendrix to Zappa to the Vaughan brothers. He died on stage in the middle of a show in Japan in 1996... it's said his last words were "Ain't that a bitch!".
