Before ZZ Top were sharp dressed men they were just a little three piece band from Texas. With no beards. But they had “that sound” driven by Billy Gibbons unmistakable guitar and vocal. Bob Heil and Heil Sound were there on the band’s early tours perfecting the live sound where, with a trio, everything mattered.
In this episode you will hear a wonderful and wide ranging discussion by Bob of his work with ZZ Top including some of his secrets for getting the critical guitar and bass sounds on the road. You will also be treated to some little known nuggets too – Billy Gibbons is a voracious reader – so enjoy!
Bob has risen to the top in every direction he has taken and he has done that maintaining a sense of being a real person checking his ego. He always goes to the level you are and never insults you with his excellence. I have always liked Bob because of that a real genune person he is.
Great History, Bob. Thanks for posting.. Look me up next time you are in Albuquerque!!

Brilliant! Just scratches the surface on Bob’s knowledge.
