PBS world has this show called Speakeasy, where they have two musicians talking. Billy Gibbons is on there right now. talking about his history and his families history since coming to the USA. As well as him meeting BB King in a recording studio and watching BB record when Billy was only 5 or 6 years old.

If you ever get a chance to see that show on PBS World do it.

Easy access
https://frontandcenter.com/speakeasy4/

Link may take a moment to get starte dbut entire show's available.
Billy The G remains a loquacious raconteur. grin
He's a great interview subject, not simply telling the tales but doing so in a quite entertaining way.
Subjects discussed: Bo Diddley as guitar designer; Fender > Gretsch; the power of light gauge strings;
the benefits of a musical family; &, as they say, more !
