With England on lockdown, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, has been adding more rock songs to their repertoire.
Their latest is ZZ Top's "Gimme All Your Lovin'."
ZZ Top singer and guitarist Reverend Billy F. Gibbons tells us exclusively that he is "impressed, flattered and amazed" by The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain’s version of the band's "Gimme All Your Lovin’.”
"They really honored our song in no uncertain terms," says Gibbons. "I have to admit to some jealously not only as far as their musicianship and delightful vocal abilities are concerned, but also because they got us beat in the cartage department.
"We have to engage the services of semi-trucks to haul our gear to performances while they can just about pocket what they bring to the party. It’s admirable that they’re able to travel light and have as much presence as they do.”
"Gimme All Your Lovin'" is the first track on ZZ's 1983 album, Eliminator.
Others artists they've tackled include The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and David Bowie.
