ZZ Top Caricature


Caricature of Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill of the trio blues band ZZ Top (with drummer Frank Beard), formed in Houston, Texas in 1969. The three have been together ever since. ZZ Top released Tres Hombres in 1973, featuring their first hit, “La Grange”, (written about the Chicken Ranch, a notorious brothel in La Grange, Texas, that also inspired the musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas). Gibbon’s guitar tone is influenced by his fixation of getting custom gauged guitar strings made for himself. Whereas your average Gibson will run a set of .010 to .046, and your run-of-the-mill Fender will start with .09’s, Billy Gibbons needed .007’s.

You read that correctly. .007’s. The man responsible for the grittiest, grimiest blues riffs of our modern era wrote them all while playing strings custom made to be lighter than anything on the market: .007 – .009 – .011 – .020w – .030 – .038.
