Who made this brilliant piece of music?

Hey all,

I need your help. When I was a kid the only music I could listen to were on the old 45rpm records my father had. One of the first songs I ever heard was "Sixteen Tons", originally by Merle Travis, but I listened to the famous Ernie Ford version.

By accident I found a hardrock cover on YouTube, that is just freaking awesome. The problem: The video is a fake. It is edited from footage of Jeff Beck and Billy Gibbons (from ZZ Top) playing Foxy Lady. I don't care much, but the maker of the video did not reveal who really made this cover. And all the comments are also wondering. Nobody seems to know this version. So see me begging: Please, listen to this version (close your eyes to not get distracted by the video). If you don't know it, you will listen to it several times just because it is so driving. But if you know it, please tell me the artist(s) of this cover!

Lol
I saw them (ZZ Top) back in the mid 90's somewhere in Pennsylvania.
It seemed a little weird at the time considering that they, and I are from Texas, and that was my first time to see them live.

@newt
I like some of ZZ Top's music, but it's the non-mainstream ones that attract me. Their 80s/early 90's stuff is not so impressive, while something like the best guitar riff ever, La Grange, is awesome. The real deal is Gibbons' blues groove!

Is it really impossible to find out the original artist of this cover? It is produced, it is well done, nobody recognizes it?

True it might be impossible to find. I like this version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_yKtiIgP_c

Ask the crafty russian who made the video although it was years ago.

It sounds like a composite of a couple pieces..

Look up Rockafire Explosion. Sounds like his voice laid over a different track.

Edit; Should mention the voice from the Rockafire track itself also appears edited.

The channel owner just had too much time on his hands and mashed a load of stuff together, makes sense why no-one can find an 'original' here : D
