Gibbons brings blues to festival

Billy Gibbons, frontman of ZZ Top, has jumped up on stage for a free showcase marking the final hours of the South By Southwest Music festival.

Fans excitedly rushed over once the long-bearded bluesman began playing Dust My Broom. They eagerly snapped cellphone pictures of Billy while he did a stand-in with the New York-based group The Cringe.

The cameo underscored the sometimes magical and impromptu feel of South By Southwest, which wrapped up this weekend in Austin, Texas.

On Friday, singer Erykah Badu unexpectedly jumped on stage with rapper Bun B, and Jack White of White Stripes fame delighted street walkers on Wednesday when he plugged into a mobile amp and staged a free show in a downtown parking lot.

Gibbons appeared unannounced at the free food and music event called Feedback hosted by cooking celebrity Rachael Ray.

The guitarist was publicising his own food product, a new hot sauce called BFG 44: "Let's spice it up a little bit," he said as he handed out bottles sporting a label that reads, "Have Mercy. Shake Well." Other than that, Gibbons said he's in the studio with his ZZ Top band mates working on a new album.
