Billy Gibbons Talks Texas Blues | Paul Shaffer Plus One

A little bit country a LOT of rock & roll

ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons is a Texas blues icon. He carefully mixed together country and western with, in the words of Gibbons himself, “Hardcore blues and R&B.” This week on Paul Shaffer Plus One, Billy Gibbons sits down with Paul Shaffer to talk about the origins of his sound. He talks about gaining inspiration from opening for Jimi Hendrix, all the way back to the origins of Texas Blues, when people had nothing else to do but sit on a porch and play guitar. Check out a sneak peek of the episode above and tune in to hear more of their conversation, plus a cover of Muddy Water’s “The Big Bad Blues”. An all-new episode of Paul Shaffer Plus One premieres this Sunday at 8/7c on AXS TV!
