Affectionately marketed as "That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” this legendary American blues-rock trio from Texas consists of Billy Gibbons (guitar), Dusty Hill (bass), and Frank Beard (drums). From the beginning, ZZ Top took a hard-rocking power-trio approach to the blues, cultivating a new audience for it in the 1970’s and ‘80’s with superior musicianship channeled through plenty of attitude, take-it-as-it-comes style, and some devilishly funny songs. Their genius is that they’re reverential about the blues but loose and funny about the subject matter of their songs, which are laden with pop-culture references, sexual double entendres and the determined pursuit of a good time. For many, ZZ Top has been the premiere party band on the planet. To this day they remain one of rock’s most entertaining live acts. On March 15, 2004 ZZ Top’s contribution to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll was acknowledged when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. No doubt, this “little ol’ band from Texas” just keeps on rolling.
