ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons releases My Lucky Card video

ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons has released a video for “My Lucky Card”, a track from his forthcoming album, “Hardware.”

Directed by Harry Reese, the clip was shot in and around Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace in Pioneertown, Ca (near Joshua Tree National Park), the celebrated cantina/honky-tonk that was originally built as part of the western movie set where The Cisco Kid and Gene Autry TV shows were filmed as were other movie projects.

“We thought Pappy’s would be a great place for us to do the video since it reflects the rough and tumble high desert vibe that was the inspiration for the album,” says Gibbons. “I play a slide guitar in this one but neglected to bring a proper slide along for the shoot. Necessity being a mother, we improvised and used a beer bottle. We went through a case or more looking for just the right bottle neck and, at last, found one on a classic Mexican brew. That was some thirst-quenching research to be sure.”

“My Lucky Card” follows “Desert High” and “West Coast Junkie” as the third preview to the June 4 release of Gibbons’ third solo set, which sees him joined by his live lineup of drummer Matt Sorum and guitarist Austin Hanks.

“Hardware” features 11 new original tunes, a guest appearance by Larkin Poe, and a cover of “Hey Baby, Que Paso”, originally recorded by the Texas Tornados.
