THE BFG THREE, featuring Billy F. Gibbons (ZZ TOP), Matt Sorum (GUNS N' ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER) and Mike Flanigin, performed last night (Friday, December 13) at Norwood Space Center in Norwood, Massachusetts. All proceeds from the gig supported Music Drives Us, a Norwood-based nonprofit supplying grants to music programs designed to effect positive change for people of all ages.
Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer Sorum is a co-founder and head of communications at Artbit, a revolutionary distributed-ledger platform that allows both artists and fans to share and monetize artistic talent from anywhere across the globe.
Matt grew up in Long Beach, California in the heyday of 1960s rock and roll and has let his passion for music guide his endeavors ever since. Whether it's revolutionizing monetization opportunities for starving artists with Artbit, or through philanthropic efforts with Adopt The Arts, Matt's charity to keep music alive in schools, Matt has a passion for giving back to the community that he's been a part of since he was 14.
ZZ TOP still maintains the most consistently stable lineup in the history of rock music: Billy F. Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard. In 1969, Gibbons formed ZZ TOP with drummer Beard and bass-guitarist Hill in Texas. 15 studio albums, 30 million record sales and five decades later, "That Little Ol' Band From Texas" is still going strong, playing timeless hits like "La Grange", "Legs", "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Tush" to audiences the world over.
