ZZ Top guitarist to launch debut solo album on Conan

ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons will launch his newly-release debut solo album, “Perfectamundo”, with a performance on the TBS late night show Conan on Monday, November 16.

Gibbons co-produced the project with Joe Hardy and recorded it in Houston, Los Angeles, Austin and Pontevedra, Spain.

The Cuban music-inspired record sees the ZZ Top guitarist joined by a handpicked group of musicians dubbed The BFG’s.

BFG & Co. includes Martin Guigui on piano and B3, B3 player Mike Flanigan, vocalist/bassist Alex Garza and drummer Greg Morrow, with co-producer Hardy offering additional guitar, keys, bass and vocals, and Gary Moon also supplying additional guitar.

Gibbons recently postponed the start of his US tour in support of the project.

Originally set to begin November 10 in Atlanta, GA, Gibbons will reschedule the first 12 dates into early next year while moving the tour’s official launch to November 27 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
