Billy Gibbons to Appear at Sam Goody

ZZ Top Guitarist Billy Gibbons will appear at Sam Goody in City Walk, on Wednesday, November 30, to sign copies of his new book, Billy F Gibbons: Rock & Roll Gearhead.

In Billy F Gibbons: Rock and Roll Gearhead, ZZ Top's iconic ax man riffs on his teenage garage band years, four-decade recording career, experiences with icons such as Jimi Hendrix and Chuck Berry, and life on the road. He reveals the tales behind dozens of guitars from his collection that numbers more than 600. These include the famous "Furry One, " "Muddywood, " constructed from a timber fallen from Muddy Waters' childhood home and commissioned as a fundraiser for the Delta Blues Museum, and, the creme de la creme, "Pearly Gates, " his cherished musical companion.
