Billy F Gibbons Has A Solo Tour To Do

by Paul Cashmere on August 10, 2018

in News

Billy F Gibbons will take his second solo album ‘The Big Bad Blues’ out on the road in October.

The legendary ZZ Top founder has a solo band featuring drummer Matt Sorum (Guns ‘N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), left handed guitarist Austin Hanks, and Elwood Francis, DJ and harmonica player.

‘The Big Bad Blues’, like the title suggests, is a blues based record. “There’s something very primordial within the art form, nobody gets away from the infectious allure of those straight-ahead licks,” Billy said in a statement. “I suspect Jimmy Reed did me in early on. The inventiveness of that high and lonesome sound remains solid and stridently strong to this day. We could go on to mention the lineup of usual suspects, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy, all three Kings [B.B., Albert and Freddie]. The lengthy list of champions is forever carved in stone.”

The Billy F Gibbons ‘Big Bad Blues’ tour will conclude at the iconic Troubadour in West Hollywood on November 18.
