Paul Shaffer Plus One With Billy Gibbons ZZ Top
The other day I watched Billy Gibbons and wow, was I educated on more than I ever thought I knew. Billy told stories of playing way back when, with the legendary Jimi Hendrix, and they both like so many, got inspiration from the famous Bluesman of the past.
We are talking BB King, Muddy Waters, Johnny Lee Hooker, An American blues artist, songwriter, and master guitar aficionado. Son of a sharecropper, he rose to prominence, performing a dynamic guitar-style adaptation of Delta blues.
His was incredible to watch and learn as he spoke of stories of playing with Jimi and how he mastered chord slides on songs that seemed like hearing them for the first time like it was yesterday.
As Billy Gibbons goes deep into his origins, the show and how Paul and him just jam and chat were terrific. This is a must-watch show. Paul Shaffer and his talent, along with these greats that come on his show to enlighten you to things you would never have known or guessed.
