Billy Gibbons brings friends, PAIR OF B-3s to New York gigs

Besides Gibbons on his own, the distinguishing factor of the New York shows was the novel B-3 duo.


We first experimented with it on Daryls show, said Gibbons. Then when we started thinking about the solo shows, we wondered, What would make them interesting? and figured one B-3, is good, two are better. We couldnt place it having been done before, which was all the more reason to do it.


Flanigin did point out that while B-3 players Jimmy McGriff and Richard Groove Holmes recorded together, it doesnt happen very often.


Its the extreme outer fringe, because youre hauling two [b-3s], when hauling one is hard enough, Gibbons explained. So they rented a pair of the big Hammonds for Guigui and Flanigin.
