Billy Gibbons And The BFG’s: Perfectamundo

Album Review

ZZ Top mainman’s first solo album, heavy on the Afro-Cuban flavours.

There’s a famous story that Billy Gibbons tells about Jimi Hendrix, from the days before ZZ Top were formed. In the late 60s, when Gibbons was still a teenager, his psychedelic rock group The Moving Sidewalks opened for Hendrix on a US tour, and Jimi was so impressed by the young guitarist that he taught him how to play his song Foxy Lady, bending the strings just so.
