Interview Billy F. Gibbons [ZZ Top]
We had the pleasure to meet Billy F. Gibbons. The guitarist of the American rock band ZZ Top. Gibbons formed ZZ Top in late 1969, which then quickly settled on bassist/vocalist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank "Rube" Beard.
The band rolled on, intensively touring and recording/releasing albums until 1977, when they took an extended hiatus. They reunited two-and-a-half years later in order to start recording under a new Warner Bros. contract. Unbeknownst to each other at the time, both Dusty Hill and Billy Gibbons had grown the chest-length beards that quickly became a part of their image.
