9780760340301: Billy F Gibbons: Rock + Roll Gearhead

Now available in paperback, Billy F Gibbons throws wide his garage and studio doors for an exclusive look at his exquisite vintage and way-out custom guitars and his influential hot rods and custom cars. From the mythical ’59 Les Paul sunburst known as Pearly Gates and the “Furry One” of MTV renown to cars like the Eliminator, CadZZilla, and Kopperhed, they’re all here—more than four dozen guitars and ten astounding vehicles, all expounded upon by BFG himself and shown in specially commissioned color photography. And while BFG’s cars n’ guitars are the stuff of legend, no less intriguing are the tales behind his incredible music career. From teenage Houston garage rock to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the whole story is between these covers, told in the Good Reverend Willie G’s own words and illustrated with photos and memorabilia from his personal archive.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Billy F Gibbons: Rock + Roll Gearhead:

"Any fan of cars or guitars will welcome this hefty document as an irresistible document of politically correct pornography, staring with envy at Gibbons' gorgeous axes and hipster wheels for hours on end."
--Jim DeRogatis, Chicago Sun-Times"A fascinating look at the history of a great band and Gibbons' life-long twin passions."
--Peter Egan, Road & Track"The cars and the music are part of the same enterprise: creating a shared landscape of the mind, a fantasy land where Mr. Gibbons' music provides a soundtrack for imagined journeys. . . . Many will be happy to ride along."
--New York Times"A love letter to rodded '34 coupes, chopped Cadillacs . . . and assorted customized Gibsons, Fenders, and Magnatones, punctuated with some fine pictures of girls who seem to have had most of their clothes stolen."
--Daily Telegraph"Part tome, part bio, and all definitively Billy."
--Vintage Guitar"Reveals the tales behind dozens of his favorite guitars, and offers the lowdown on 10 of his hottest hot rods. . . . Of course, the book also offers plenty of Gibbons' Texas-fueled pearls of wisdom."
--Guitar World
