Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) has a new album coming out June 4th titled “Hardware”. You can pre-order it here. The latest single Desert High. This one has Gibbons speaking or rather narrating the song more so than singing. Musically it sounds like something from The Doors. Outside of that the guitar solo is the highlight. The song as a whole something of eerie tone to it. I guess I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised by this track and I have to say the song grows on you.
Now something more interesting and maybe it’s a coincidence but he mentions The Lizard King which is Joe Morrison of The Doors. He also mentions Gram as in Gram Parsons (The Byrds) who did die at The Joshua Tree Inn and my understanding it is room eight. The Keith he mentions is Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones. When you put all the lyrics together and have some background to the song, it takes it all to a deep level. Unfortunately there is no video, just a animated version of the Eliminator Coupe (The ne you have seen in the old ZZ Top Videos). You can check it out below.
