Gibbons, Billy F ”Billy F Gibbons: Rock + Roll Gearhead”

120 kr

Imagine stepping out of an air-conditioned Kwik-E-Mart and into the hot summer sun, cold soda in hand, when a long-and-low baby blue ’62 Impala trolls into the parking lot. How ’bout rousing from a Saturday afternoon nap and seeing the world’s most famous red ’33 coupe pull into the barbecue joint across the street? There’s no mistaking the common thread between these remarkable scenarios-it’s Billy F Gibbons, the bearded and be-shaded axe-man extraordinaire from ZZ Top and certified Grade-A Texas gearhead.

As with a number of notable rockers, Gibbons’ jones for hot rods and customs is the stuff of legend. But beyond this bona fide bluesman’s unrepentant love for internal combustion and mastery of the six- string is a noted collector and artist whose ideas have manifested themselves not just in his cars but in hundreds of mind-bending custom guitars as well. In Billy F Gibbons: Rock + Roll Gearhead, BFG not only gives fans the lowdown on ten of his most outstanding rods and customs-including Kopperhed, CadZZilla, and the famous red Eliminator Coupe-he also reveals the tales behind dozens of guitars like the infamous ”Furry One” of MTV fame, the ”Muddywood” crafted out of a roof beam from Muddy Waters’ boyhood home, and, of course, the crème de la crème, “Pearly Gates,” the 1959 Sunburst Les Paul tone- 66 monster that he found under a bed. In addition, for the first time ever, BFG offers an in-depth riff on his Texas teenage garage-band years, his four-decade recording career beginning with The Moving Sidewalks, tales of touring with rock icons Roky Erickson, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Chuck Berry, and, of course, life on the road with that ”Lil’ Ol Band from Texas.’
