Billy F. Gibbons of ZZ Top Maps Out Fall Tour Supporting New Solo LP ‘The Big Bad Blues’

In July, ZZ Top legend Billy F. Gibbons premiered his cover of the blues standard “Rollin’ and Tumblin,” taken from his forthcoming solo album, The Big Bad Blues. The LP will be released on September 21.

On Friday, Gibbons announced plans for a full solo tour in October/November that will find him rockin’ throughout the United States, playing songs from his new record, old classics and who knows what else. For this tour, Gibbons will play with a band including rock icon Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), guitarist Austin Hanks and DJ/harmonica player Elwood Francis.

Gibbons has also premiered another new song from the record. Here’s “Missin’ Yo’ Kissin’:

Says Gibbons of the album: “There’s something very primordial within the art form, nobody gets away from the infectious allure of those straight-ahead licks! 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.”
