Friday Flashback: Johnny "Guitar" Watson

Johnny "Guitar" Watson
(February 3, 1935 – May 17, 1996)

Tonight's presentation of Friday Flashback, we're taking you back to one of my musical heroes who influenced many artists on the Blues, Funk and Jazz circuits. A Houston native who composed many hit records that spanned radio stations and music stores, from here, all the way across to Japan. "Superman Lover" is my top favorite by Mr. Watson, which was sampled by producer/emcee Redman, as well as a few other Hip-Hop artists. Get your dose of what he calls Funk Beyond The Call of Duty.
