R.I.P. Dusty Hill of ZZ Top


Recommended Posts

Wtf is going on this week?! 😔

From ZZ Top’s Facebook page:

"We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX.  We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top'. We will forever be connected to that "Blues Shuffle in C.” 

You will be missed greatly, amigo. 

Frank & Billy

What happened? I heard he was replaced for the recent shows due to an issue with his hips. So what the hell happened?

I must say, I don't like seeing that in print.

Well, if it's any consolation, when it is written in reference to yourself, you'll be too dead to see it. ;}

That is true and I guess resting in peace isn't such a bad thought.

Their 80s stuff is Legendary, but they were already cranking out killer shit in the 70s.

I've always loved these tracks. 

"La Grange" is PERFECTION!!!

An interesting video I've just watched regarding Dusty's wishes about ZZ Top.

"Let the show go on". Very commendable. 

This very thing was mentioned about KISS and Whitesnake in the Whitesnake/Jelusick thread.

I wonder if a long beard is a prerequisite for his replacement?, or at least having the surname "Beard".

Their 70's stuff was the real shit.

Rest In Peace, Dusty.

I used to play the heck out of Tres Hombres and Fandango albums when I was a kid. RIP, Dusty.
