Billy F Gibbons (born December 16, 1949), nicknamed the Reverend Willie G, is a musician, actor, hot rod and car customizer and perhaps best known as the lead guitarist for ZZ Top. He is also the lead singer and composer for many of the band's songs. Gibbons is known for playing his Gretsch "Billy-Bo" guitar and his 1959 Gibson Les Paul guitar known as Pearly Gates and is also noted for using a Mexican Peso coin as a guitar plectrum. A cornerstone in Hollywood, Gibbons remains a familiar fixture at the Sunset Marquis Hotel producing studio sessions with actors Billy Bob Thornton and J.P. Shellnutt along with musicians Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Jed Leiber, and Dwight Yoakam.
