Rick Rubin Is Why ZZ Top's New Album Is Delayed

(Gibson) ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons says the delay in releasing the band's new album is not the fault of him and his cohorts: producer Rick Rubin is behind the long gap between releases.

Speaking to Noise11's Paul Cashmere, Gibbons said everything is still "buzzing" in ZZ Top land. "I guess the irony of the whole picture is that the band is wondering. Where is this thing?" Gibbons said. "When do we hear it? Rick's funny. We've been friends for as long as I can remember. Triple decades and this is the first time we have broken the mold as business pals."

Gibbons admits that fellow beard icon Rubin has an unorthodox approach to working but, "has a sense of intuition that can't be beat. …The only real directive was 'don't change much' and I said 'okay' and he said 'listen, if we stumble into something that's really insane and it works I'm going to keep it' and I said 'that's good.'" more on this story
