Moreover, the legendary bluesman also hinted that working with Rick could make ZZ's new record goes back to their roots. Confirming that statement, Billy said, "Could be. Rick and I have been friends for a couple of decades now. And we both like a lot of the same things. And mostly it is that rootsy kind of sense of realism. That's his genius."
