ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons recently spoke to The Guardian about his life as a musician but also gave some interesting information regarding his musical preferences. While talking about his favorite songs, Gibbons mentioned a Rolling Stones hit and praised it for its poetic allure.

The Rolling Stones is one of the most legendary music acts in the history of rock music. They have been a source of inspiration for many musicians from several genres, and it seems Billy Gibbons is one of their fans. In his recent interview, he revealed that he deeply loves the band’s 1972 song, ‘Tumbling Dice.’

Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the song ‘Tumbling Dice’ is the lead single from the Stones’ double album ‘Exile On Main St.’ It has an unusual tempo and groove with a blues and boogie-woogie rhythm. Following its release, ‘Tumbling Dice’ received critical acclaim and became a chart success.

The song has an irregular lyrical structure, with a different number of lines for the verse and chorus. When each chorus begins, the piano, bass, and drums drop out, and the listener hears the lines ‘you got to roll me’ as the guitar starts to play. In a recent interview with The Guardian, Gibbons revealed that is his favorite part.

While giving an honest playlist to The Guardian, Billy Gibbons recently revealed that he knows every lyric of the Stones’ ‘Tumbling Dice.’ Gibbons then stated that he has always appreciated the song’s poetic allure and relentless grind and is a fan of its chorus. After revealing dice is among his passions, Gibbons added he cannot go by a casino without going in for a roll.

Revealing he knows every lyric of ‘Tumbling Dice,’ Billy Gibbons told The Guardian the following about the song:

“I’ve always loved the poetic allure and unrelenting grind of ‘Tumbling Dice’ by the Rolling Stones, especially when it gets to the ‘You got to roll me’ chorus. Dice are one of my passions, so if I’m ever passing a casino, I always have to go in for a roll.”
