ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons Reuniting with His Band the Moving Sidewalks
ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons is getting back together with his band the Moving Sidewalks for their first performance in a whopping 44 years. The psychedelic group's original lineup -- Gibbons, bass player Don Summers, drummer Dan Mitchell and keyboardist Tom Moore -- will reunite for a show at New York City’s B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on March 30, 2013.
So, why is now the perfect time to reunite? The gig is set to commemorate the guys releasing the compilation, Moving Sidewalks: The Complete Collection, so it’s good timing.
Moving Sidewalks has a rich history. Gibbons first formed the group in Houston in ‘60s, and the band was eventually tapped to open for big names such as including Jimi Hendrix and the Doors. The guys released one album, Flash, in 1968 and broke up in 1969 when Summers and Moore were drafted to join the military.
