Johnny "Guitar" Watson

Paul Trynka, MOJO, July 1996

NOVEMBER 1995: Johnny "Guitar" Watson Is Halfway through a slick set at Oakland's Henry Kaiser Arena. He's wearing a luminously glossy white suit, trademark jewelled shades and white fedora. The crowd is still applauding his graphic dry-humping of his guitar during a slow blues as he introduces the next number.
