BonesAngela (Michaela Conlin) has always been a free spirit. She’s very artistic, and never afraid to speak her mind. It makes us wonder — what sort of family did she come from? What are her parents like?

Well, as any diehard Bones fans can tell you, Angela’s father is none other than rock legend Billy Gibbons! And no, Ange’s dad isn’t just played by the quirky ZZ Top guitarist — Billy the rock star literally is her father. (Does that make her rock royalty?)

Over the years on Bones, Billy has showed up on multiple occasions … Usually to torture son-in-law Hodgins (TJ Thyne) with nights of crazy debauchery that end with poor Jack getting tricked into some sort of crazy tattoo he never asked for.

Then, in Bones Season 6, Episode 15, Billy absolutely insisted that his new grandson’s name be “Staccato Mamba” — and idea that came to him in a song. Hodgins puts his foot down on that one, but Daddy Dearest still won out in the end. (Baby Hodgela’s name is Michael Staccato Vincent Hodgins, after all!)

And if you can’t get enough of Ange’s crazy father, you’ll be happy to know that Billy is headed back to Bones in just a few short weeks! He’ll appear in the December 8 episode, “The Twist in the Twister,” when the sleep-deprived new parents Angela and Hodgins enlist Grandpa Billy for a bit of babysitting.

Um, have they learned nothing from Billy’s history on Bones so far? Obviously, this babysitting escapade is not going to to end well!

That said, the whole thing should prove to be hilarious.  Billy’s Bones episodes are always comedic gold. We can’t wait to see what he has in store for us this time around!
