Currently trying to listen to albums in their entirety; namely The Beatles' discography, She and Him, Norah Jones, Colbie Caillat, and Sara Bareilles.

Let me tell you, when I listened to that song, when he got to the second part, I felt so bad and horrible.   Then it hit me who he was signing about, and I just started laughing!

ZZ Top bassist and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dusty Hill dead at 72

Lyndsey Parker - July 28, 2021


Dusty Hill, bassist and secondary lead vocalist for legendary Southern blues-rock trio ZZ Top, has died, according to a post on the band’s official Facebook page by his bandmates of the past 52 years, Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard. Hill was 72 years old.

"We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, Texas,” read the band’s statement. “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.”

ZZ Top is an American rock band formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas by vocalist and guitarist Billy Gibbons. After its formation, the band underwent a few member changes before settling on its most consistent lineup for more than five decades, with the addition of Frank Beard (drums) and Dusty Hill (bass) in 1969 and 1970 respectively. Initially rooted in blues, the band's style has evolved throughout their career, with a signature sound based on Gibbons' blues guitar style and the rhythm section of Hill and Beard. Their lyrics, often embellished with sexual innuendo, focus on their Texas roots and sense of humor. Popular for their live performances and the identical physical appearances of Gibbons and Hill—who were rarely seen without their long beards, sunglasses, and Stetson hats—the group has staged several elaborate tours.

Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 singles of ZZ Top.
