ZZ Top’s Billy F. Gibbons preaches the gospel of cars and guitars
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of that little ol’ band from Texas, ZZ Top’s front man and guitarist has published a newly updated edition of Billy F Gibbons: Rock + Roll Gearhead, co-written by Tom Vickers, with photography by David Perry. Rock music and cars have been associated since the very beginning—Ike Turner’s Rocket 88 was first recorded in 1951—but few rockers have been more closely associated with hot cars than Gibbons and his bandmates. His Eliminator hot rod starred in three of the group’s music videos at a time when MTV was a growing cultural influence, making that red ’33 Ford coupe a pop-culture icon.
