Listening to Rio Grande Mud, it's no wonder that Jimi Hendrix dubbed Billy Gibbons the best guitarist alive. From the insanely great riff that underpins "Just Got Paid Today" through the countless lead phrases that fill out every square inch of tape on this classic record, the man smokes. Drummer Frank Beard and bass player Dusty Hill are pretty good, too.
