ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons Covers Vintage Fleetwood Mac on New Tribute Album

Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac will be released August 14 by Hear Music/Concord.

The album features new covers of 17 classic Fleetwood Mac songs, some of which even dip back into the Peter Green era, courtesy of Billy Gibbons & Co.'s rendition of "Oh Well," Fleetwood Mac's 1969 single. Besides the ZZ Top guitarist, Billy Gibbons & Co. features Blake Mills and Matt Sweeney.

You can listen to Gibbon's gritty cover of "Oh Well," courtesy of Rolling Stone, right here.
