As John Fogerty and ZZ Top roll on down the highway together, the Little Old Band From Texas‘ Billy Gibbons, who’s been popping up in unexpected places, has joined Fogerty on a new song, Holy Grail. It’s a bit reminiscent of ZZ Top’s La Grange, with its John Lee Hooker-esque guitar line.
Says Fogerty, “For me as a musician, swamp boogie is the holy grail of music. This sound captured my soul from a very early age. I couldn’t think of a better artist to conjure the vibe of the swamp with me better than the one and only Billy F. Gibbons.”
“Getting together and collaborating with John Fogerty to create a new song called ‘Holy Grail’ is a tangible dividend from the Fogerty-Gibbons exchange,” says Gibbons. “It’s classic electric-guitar chops with an electrifying climax.”
The Fogerty/Top Blues And Bayous Tour launched late in May, and will see them traveling around the United States until the end of this month.
