On Friday ZZ Top Collaboration Van Wilks Announces First Album In A Decade was a top story. Here is the recap: (The Blues) Texan guitarist Van Wilks will next month release 21st Century Blues, his first album in 10 years. It includes his own take on Drive By Lover, a track he co-wrote with Billy Gibbons for ZZ Top's 2012 album La Futura.

Wilks - who appears on ZZ Top's 2014 DVD Live At Montreaux Jazz Festival - says: "We played around with the idea of years in South Austin. It was forgotten until Billy asked me if I could revive it, or even remember it.

"I sent him a few vignettes from a barely-working cassette, and a few hours later he played me the track from an LA studio. 'Whip up some words,' he said."

Of his own version he adds: "Billy came out to the studio and we messed it up just right for my take." Read what Gibbons had to say and more details - here.
