This album is also available as an MP3 Download.
Michael "Cadillac" Johnson began playing guitar at the age of 10. By age 14 he had switched to the bass guitar and began playing professionally. Cadillac started out at an early age playing in the rich blues and soul environment of Houston, Texas and in the Gulf Coast area. During these early years he also played with the great Lightnin' Hopkins. Friend Billy Gibbons called upon Cadillac in 1969 to play bass guitar on an interim basis with ZZ TOP until Dusty Hill could move from Dallas to join the group. Billy is responsible for Cadillac's nickname. While performing with ZZ Top, Gibbons would introduce him as the "Cadillac of Bass Players."
Cadillac, with the help of drummer Gonzy Trevino, has brought together an All Star lineup of Texas blues luminaries (including our good friend Johnnie "Red" Latham) to create the CD "KneeBone Station."
