Happy Birthday Reverend Billy Gibbons!

Happy Birthday Reverend Billy Gibbons! 
That's right, Rev. Billy G was born on this day in 1949. Noted as Jimi Hendrix favorite contemporary guitarist Billy G is one tone monster. His solos are complex in their simplicity often punctuated with pinch harmonics, growling chordal arrangements and just the right note at just the right time.

One little nugget of triva, ZZ Top opened for the Rolling Stones in 1973. The also played on the Stones big resurgence/resurrection tour in 1981. As an already established act, ZZ Top's presence as a opener for the Rolling Stones solidified their play in rock and roll history.

Happy Birthday Rev!
