Three Hours Past Midnight

Album: Three Hours Past Midnight (1956)
  • Although this 1956 Johnny Guitar Watson composition is a run of the mill blues track, it is the song Frank Zappa said inspired him to become a guitarist. Zappa was born in December 1940, and at the time this was released, he was a high school student with a serious interest in classical music, including the avant guarde composer Edgard Varèse. >>
