ZZ Top‘s Billy Gibbons said he is going to pay tribute to his late friend Joe Hardy by naming his next solo album after the producer and engineer.
“I think we’re going to call it Hardware, and that’s in tribute to the late Joe Hardy, our stalwart engineer for four decades,” Gibbons told Guitar World.
“Joe recently passed on, but in his wake he left the instruction manual — ‘Here’s how to do it.’ We’re still trying to get to the back chapters. It goes deep,” said the lead singer of the rock band.
Joe Hardy, who began working with ZZ Top on 1983’s Eliminator, died following a brief illness in February at the age of 66 after a 35-year-long collaboration with the band.
