Gangster of Love - Johnny Guitar Watson

Legbamel Not-Pop

Unless you're a fan of both funk and the Steve Miller Band, you've likely never heard the inspiration for The Joker. Today, you can fix that personal failing by enjoying this fabulous performance of the real Gangster of Love by Johnny Guitar Watson in 1977. Sure, you have to enjoy three minutes of introductory goofiness before the song, but it's at least as fun as the song itself. Not only that, but you can enjoy the 70s jumpsuits at the same time. Once Gangster of Love begins, however, you no longer care what the band wears because you're too busy getting down and watching Mr. Guitar Watson justify his name.
