I never understood why he was called this. I was always confused with Johnny Guitar Watson. Anyway, they're both in Heaven now. pray
I may disagree with everything you say, but I will defend your right to say it.

He became the master of mashing on the pedals as he played to get that dirty, oil-sludge, up-the-foothills sound out of the guitar. RIP

His work on Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite brought me back 2 DA FUNK!

Especially the solo at the end of the song "Welcome."

My jaw hit the floor when I first heard that intro to "Urban Theme," it was the funkiest thing I'd ever heard in my life.

May he rest in peace.

Came across this on Res' Soundcloud, tagged produced by Res & Wah Wah Watson.

Is this a cover? It's lovely whatever it is.
