This is such a great format! I usually don't care for live music, but Live From Daryl's house ALWAYS sounds awesome!

Thank you to have Billy Gibbons on your show. And thank you for having LFDH. Long life from you and from rock and roll. Writing from Brazil. Tks.

There are 100s of people who could be considered for this format, some might not shine. A few rare talents here... Jonny Lang, Phil Keaggy (about as good on guitar as can be--any genre/improv), Gino Vannelli, Peter Frampton!

Clerk Kent above was right--ZZ Top seems to mail it in live; playing stuff almost note for note but this performance with Daryl's band was outstanding....stellar jams throughout; Billy is one of the greatest guitar gods on earth and you see how easily interacts with the whole bands I hope Daryl brings in more rockers...would love to see him with Paul Rodgers or bring in Gary Rossington and Johnny Van Zandt, Peter Frampton or Gregg Allman

Billy Gibbons
Billy Gibbons is a founding member and guitarist for the famed Texas blues-rock band ZZ Top with bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard, who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. The band, formed in Houston in 1969, boasts seven platinum and 11 gold records, selling more than 25 million in U.S. album sales alone.

Daryl and Billy launch into a remarkably diverse seven-song set of Daryl Hall and John Oates and ZZ Top chestnuts along with a vintage cover of Hammond B-3 jazz-blues organist Jimmy McGriff’s 1963 instrumental, “Kiko.” The pair also perform such deep Daryl Hall tunes as “Bank on Your Love,” a song from Daryl Hall and John Oates' hit album, Big Bam Boom and “Love You Like a Brother,” recorded in 1973, but unreleased until 1977’s Atlantic Records hits compilation, No Goodbyes. The twosome lean into four ZZ Top nuggets, the band’s cover of Sam & Dave’s “I Thank You,” from the 1979 album Deguello; the classic “La Grange,” included on 1973’s Tres Hombres; “Sharp Dressed Man” from 1983’s 10-million-selling Eliminator, and the group’s version of the Nightcaps’ ‘50s rave-up, “Thunderbird.”

“Playing Live from Daryl’s House is a regular, down-to-earth, big bash,” said Gibbons about the experience. “Good groovin’ to the core.”

“Being in a room with Billy Gibbons is like dipping your toe into the deep wellspring of Texas rock, blues and soul,” says Daryl.
