The new solo album from ZZ Top guitarist/vocalist and Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee, Billy F Gibbons, features originals and classic blues covers from Muddy Waters to Bo Diddley.

It is the ZZ Top legend’s second career solo release, on September 21, 2018, and is the follow‐up to his acclaimed 2015 Afro‐Cuban flavored solo album Perfectamundo. Big Bad Blues also comes over 50 years after his recording debut with Moving Sidewalks, the psychedelic garage‐rock band he founded prior to forming ZZ Top.

Big Bad Blues, as the title suggests, focuses on Gibbons’ lifelong love of the blues and rock & roll, showcasing the blues influenced vocals and guitar licks that have together served as the foundation for his numerous hits over the past five decades. The album features 11 tracks balancing some classic covers like “Rollin’ and Tumblin’” and “Standing Around Crying,” along with some of Billy’s signature new blues originals.
