John Fogerty to release “Holy Grail” – new song featuring Billy Gibbons

On the eve of their Blues & Bayous tour launch, John Fogerty and Billy F Gibbons of ZZ Top, have joined together on a new song!  “Holy Grail” was written by Fogerty and features the distinctive guitar licks and additional vocals from the Reverend himself.

Listen to a snippet of the song, here:  https://youtu.be/cpYqTfW7Xm0

Of the song, Fogerty remarked, I am so happy to be playin’ and singin’ with the Reverend BFG. That Sharp Dressed Man, himself. This is the Holy Grail!

While Billy F Gibbons says, “It’s not an overstatement to say that writing a song with John Fogerty is a genuine bonus!  It’s fair to say that John and I are both pumped about our collaboration and we think this new one called “Holy Grail” holds true with some great storytelling and some solid guitarists movin’ the number right along.  It begs a shout of, ‘Turn it up!’” 

For a sneak peak of what’s in store on this summer tour, take a sneak peek as Billy F Gibbons joined up with John for an impromptu session at Lost Canyon Studio, last month:


Many have contended that this pairing was pre-ordained and we completely agree.
