    Depends on how much you revere the artist.

    Picasso used to pay for things with autographs.

    Thing about art, it is never immediately known as to the value of it and may take a long while before something is deemed as a collector's piece. If in your lifetime someone like ZZ Gibbons draws on your guitar, it's a collector's item to you and the kicker is you witnessed him do it.

    Actually I like what Billy did. The guy is a visual type, he has a cool collection of custom cars.

    Yep, definitely. Love the Rev and it looks good to me. My Goldtop is a home built kit guitar and not an R7 or even a USA model lol. Been thinking about pinstriping it myself anyways and would be even better if he did it.

    The ZZ songs and the tone of the guitar licks. There's slow-hand and then there's YM. And everything inbetween.

    The simplicity of cool.



    There's something about stringing the right notes up against the right beat that just goes through one's nervous system.

    Producer Billy Ham made it happen for ZZ.

    I like their songs, especially the older stuff before he got real distorted and synthed. Just fun boogie blues and rock.

    Many bands need a few albums under their belt before they come into their own. In 1973 ZZ was an also ran of the southern rock sound. It took them writing and producing hits that put them on the map. Eliminator came at the right time MTV hit the waves. Tres Hombres 10 years earlier was not as clinching. It is what it is.

    Wonder why they sounded like crap live. Sound guy?
