AH, yes. My favourite guitarist smile.gif

This is some more facts about Billy:



Billy Gibbons born December 16 1950 in Tanglewood Texas made his first appearance at the age of 5 in a club called The Shamrock Club in Houston Texas . His father Fred took him to see the Mary Kaye Trio who let Billy strum along in the backround .

It was at the age of 6 years old that Young Billy's love of rock and Roll began . September 9 1956 to be exact because that was the date he saw Elvis perform on the Ed Sullivan show .

Billy was considered by Jimi Hendrix to be one of the Top Guitarists around he even once said that Billy Gibbons was America's Best guitarist . Jimi actually gave Billy his Pink Strat . Billy fondly recalled the moment with the guitar legend .

"I was in the motel one night practicing in my room and this dude stuck his head in the door and said, 'Hey-y man, I thought I heard something going on in here.' It was Jimi Hendrix. I was speechless. I couldn't move. He took my guitar away and lay down across the bed with his head dangling towards the floor, looking at the ceiling. He'd run off this incredible line and then look up at me and said, (in Hendrix space-drawl tones) 'Say, man, c'n you do that?' Then he'd laugh and play some more. After that he started teaching me. I learned a lot from him.""

Billy is great guitarist recognized by his pinched harmonics in solos. ZZ Top is awesome band, used to listen to them a lot when I was younger smile.gif
