Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top fame is heading in a different direction for the solo album he's working on. As the engineers lined-up for the guitarist's solo album describe it, '...Gibbons is going to go Havana on us.' Speaking with Rolling Stone, the ZZ Top axe grinder confirmed that the record will lean heavily into a Cuban music inspired sound. At 13, Gibbons studied percussion with none other than the great Tito Puente. While a release date hasn't been locked down, the record is largely done. What should Top fans expect of it? Hard to tell. Billy only described the sound by saying '...it's turning out to be such an obtuse, oddball, unexpected left turn from ZZ Top's blues background' and adds, 'But there is something to it.'
