When Will Lee, David Letterman's bass player and an in-demand session musician, started cutting tracks for his new solo album, 'Love, Gratitude and Other Distractions,' he had plenty of famous names to lean on for special guest assistance -- including ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, who lent his guitar and vocals to a cover of 'Get Out of My Life Woman.'
Tonight (March 30), Billy Gibbons will perform with the Moving Sidewalks, the band he was in prior to forming ZZ Top, for the first time since their 1969 breakup. In a new interview, Gibbons described what it was like to return to his garage-rock roots.
Guns N' Roses concluded their Australia tour in style yesterday (March 20). The hard rock legends asked members of both opening acts -- ZZ Top and Rose Tattoo -- to join them on stage during their main set. The concert took place at the Brisbane Entertainment Center in Brisbane.
ZZ Top superfans are directed to a new eBay item: Handmade hats similar to the one Billy Gibbons wears are on sale now. They're a little pricey at $375 but, hey, everybody loves a sharp-dressed man, right?
Most of us, of course, know the long-bearded Billy Gibbons for his work with ZZ Top, but before that, he was a member of the '60s psychedelic outfit the Moving Sidewalks. Now, the guitar great has revealed plans to reunite with that band for a one-off show in support of the career retrospective, 'Moving Sidewalks: The Complete Collection.'
The Moving Sidewalks, a psychedelic blues-rock band from Texas that lasted from 1967-69, will release its entire catalog on a new two-LP set called 'The Complete Collection.' The group is most notable for featuring the recorded debut of ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons.
Music has undergone many format changes over the years, but rarely does on old form ever come back to prominence. That's exactly what has happened in recent years, however, with a new generation of music lovers latching onto vinyl records and the warm sound they provide. For ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, that fascination never left.
