Rick Rubin hooked bands up
“I’m such a big fan of those guys … it makes total sense,” Gibbons, told Billboard “And that’s pretty down and dirty, which is good for ZZ Top.”
According to the report, Gibbons demoed 15 tracks over 15 days in May this year, describing the new material as “everything from a black church gospel ballad to updated versions of ‘Rollin’ and Tumblin’.”
Gibbons is also among the artists to feature on the forthcoming ‘Metal Christmas’ album, on which he teamed up with Dave Grohl and Lemmy from Motorhead for a version of Chuck Berry‘s ‘Run, Rudolph, Run’.
