Billy Gibbons to Reunite with The Moving Sidewalks

Billy Gibbons to Reunite with The Moving Sidewalks -

ZZ Top legend Billy Gibbons is to reunite with 60's psych rock outfit The Moving Sidewalks for a one off show, reports Ultimate Classic Rock (via Gibson)

The recently announced reunion show is in support of forthcoming career retrospective 'Moving Sidewalks: The Complete Collection.'

The show will see Billy joining his original band mates Don Summers (bass), Dan Mitchell (drums) and Tom Moore (keyboard) at the B.B King Blues Club & Grill in New York City on 30th March.

The Houston-based band were founded by Gibbons in the mid-60's and opened for both The Doors and Jimi Hendrix. However the band only ever released the one full album, 1968's 'Flash' and disbanded a year later after both Don Summers and Tom Moore were drafted into the US Military.

Soon after Summers and Moore left the 'Sidewalks,' Gibbons went on to form the very first incarnation of ZZ Top with Dan Mitchell and keyboardist Lainer Grieg. Although by early 1970 both Mitchell and Greig parted ways with Gibbons, and Frank Beard and Dusty Hill replaced them.
