Before their was ZZ Top, Billy Gibbons played in a psychedelic blues-rock band called the Moving Sidewalks with Don Summers, Dan Mitchell and Tom Moore.
The group recorded one full length album, 1969’s Flash, along with a number of singles throughout the latter part of the 60’s.
The band played to a full house on Saturday night at B.B. King’s in New York with all four original members on the stage. It was the first time they had played a show since July 4, 1969. From that show, here is On the Green.
…and their very psych version of the Beatles I Want to Hold Your Hand.
