    I saw ZZ Top Guitarist Billy Gibbons on TV the other night wearing this hat:

    It's got to be one of the strangest articles of clothing I've seen.

    I saw this too (Rides on TLC).

    I woner if he is bald (seriously) and think this looks like hair (kidding)?

    BTW, I'd love to have the dough to get a car re-done like that!

    I don't the the exact details of the story, but he was on a trip through Africa and the hat was either given or traded to him by a member of one of the indigenous tribes there. It is one of his prized possessions and is also the butt of many jokes in the musician community.

    It looks even stranger in person.

    I met him in late 1998, he was wearing this same style of hat (maybe it was the same one [​IMG] ).

    He is a wacky guy, he wears two watches, one on each wrist. They are both dual time zone, looks like this picture only with a white face.
