Who could forget ZZ Top's breakout album "Tres Hombres" and that incredible iconic version of "Been Waiting for the Bus ---> Jesus Just Left Chicago"?? If any song captures the essence of West Texas blues/blues rock that song does. And if any band epitomizes that "West Texas Blues Rock sound" it's ZZ Top. Arguably one of the best power trios of all time, ZZ Top's body of work speaks for itself.
Once ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons and bassist Dusty Hill began dishing out shared vocal duties, truculent lead solos and iron-fisted bass lines with hard-working drummer Frank Beard at the helm on a warm Tuesday night at Chicagoland’s Ravinia, it became hard to keep track of the star-studded hits that just kept rolling down the rocker pipeline at full force.
John Fogerty and Billy F Gibbons of ZZ Top, have joined together on a new song! “Holy Grail” was written by Fogerty and features the distinctive guitar licks and additional vocals from the Reverend himself.

Of the song, Fogerty remarked, “I am so happy to be playin' and singin' with the Reverend BFG. That Sharp Dressed Man, himself. This is the Holy Grail!”
