Billy Gibbons is the one in the white shirt, in the middle. The Moving Sidewalks came to prominence opening for The Jimi Hendrix Experience during Hendrix's first American tour as a headliner. Gibbons has commented during live performances, while playing the intro to Foxy Lady, that Hendrix taught him how to play the song when Gibbons was "about 17" in Dallas. Longstanding rumors have it that at the end of the tour Hendrix gave Gibbons the pink Stratocaster he had been playing as a token of his appreciation for Billy' talent. Hendrix subsequently stated that Gibbons was one of the best guitarists in the U.S.
Billy Gibbons co-founded The Moving Sidewalks in Houston in 1967. The psychedelic blues-rockers went on to open for a number of famous artists, including Jimi Hendrix and The Doors, and released one album, 1968′s Flash. The group disbanded in 1969 when Summers and Moore were drafted into the military. Gibbons and Mitchell then formed an early version of ZZ Top.

Contains my favorite harpsichord solo! Gotta crank up the volume to appreciate it with this file format; it starts at the 6-minute mark.

Recorded in 1958 with Frank Zappa on lead guitar, Bobby Zappa on rhythm guitar and of course The Captain on vocals.
Frank Zappa and Paul Buff produced "The Big Surfer". Frank Zappa wrote, played guitar and acted as a surfer on this track.
Paul Buff and Dave Aerni wrote, produced and played guitar on "Not Another One!".

Only 321 youtube views. Wtf?
One of Robert Christgau's favorite bands.
Cincinnati band, this stuff is off their new record- first song is a riff on "Baba O'reilly"
I really love their record "Funeral Dress".
She rocker gurl sexy, he- not sexy, but was the lead writer for the ASS PONYS, another fine band.
If you follow the KEXP youtube channel you will learn about an amazing array of NEW MUSIC!
Ok- so this is the first song from the "Magnolia Electric Company" album where Jason Molina channels Neil Young into a hybrid beauty of power, sadness, and mythic metaphor. Just one of the best records of it's era. Recently rereleased.
Excellent Techno Blues from one of my favorite bands of the last decade.
