ZZ Top Christmas Memory
In an interview with Men's Journal (via Ultimate Classic Rock), Gibbons recalled Christmas morning at the Gibbons household in 1962, when young Billy was only 13-years-old. "Sitting under the tree was a little Gibson Melody Maker …. and away we went."
Gibbons also shared his musical memories of his family. "My dad was quite the entertainer. He was a classically trained pianist with his five brothers as the Gibbons Brothers Band," he said. "The thing he shared with me that still resonates: Play what you want to hear. And following that, the two golden rules: Play it in tune and play it in good time."
