ZZ Top, also known as “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” is the longest running major rock band with original personnel. In 2004, the Texas trio consisting of Billy F. Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. With the release of each of their albums the band has explored new ground in terms of both their sonic approach and the material they have recorded.
ZZ Top’s music is instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful and 100 percent Texas American in derivation. The band’s support for the blues is unwavering both as interpreters of the music and preservers of its legacy. ZZ Top’s support of and link to the blues remains as rock solid as the music they continue to play. They have sold millions of records over the course of their career, been officially designated as “Heroes of The State of Texas” and are true rock icons.
