Billy Gibbons Net Worth: Billy Gibbons is an American musician, producer and actor who has a net worth of $55 million. Billy Gibbons was born December 16, 1949 in Houston, Texas. He is best known as the guitarist of the American rock band ZZ Top. He began his career in the band Moving Sidewalks, who recorded Flash (1968) and opened four dates for the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Gibbons formed ZZ Top in late 1969 and released ZZ Top's First Album in 1971. The albums that followed, Rio Grande Mud (1972) and Tres Hombres (1973), along with extensive touring, solidified the group's reputation as a hard-rocking power trio. In the '80s, ZZ Top released their three biggest-selling albums: Eliminator (1983), Afterburner (1985) and Recycler (1990). A wave of music videos for the hit singles Legs, Gimme All Your Lovin' and Sharp Dressed Man, among others, became mainstays on MTV. Despite ZZ Top's loss of their early fans with radio-friendly sound and blunders such as the remixed compilation Six Pack (1987), the band's unique blend of boogie and humorous, sometimes raunchy, lyrics, supported by Gibbons' blues-based prowess, continues to attract fans. In recent years, Gibbons has made appearances with other artists and even taken television roles, most notably a role on the series Bones. He was ranked No. 32 on the 2011 Rolling Stone list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. In 2012, ZZ Top released their album La Futura. Gibbons has continued to keep busy musically, playing with the likes of the Raconteurs, Jeff Beck, Kid Rock and Queens of the Stone Age. In 2004, ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2006, Gibbons married longtime girlfriend Gilligan Stillwater.
