ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons And His Friend...Prince?


So, a bearded guy in a ten-gallon hat and a dude in a purple sequined trench coat with high heels walk into a bar together...ok, not a joke.

ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons recalls hearing the first 12 seconds of a Prince song, “'When Doves Cry is it for me, really," says Gibbons, "That opening guitar figure is killer. That passage solidified our admiration for Prince as a truly gifted soloist on the six-string."

And evidently, the two were friends as well, spending hours talking about...well, guitars. "We performed together one evening in Manhattan, and later that same night, we gathered at a late-night club to exchange angles on all things guitar," Gibbons says. "Prince was always stretching the limits and his guitar prowess out there remains timeless."
