Default RIP - Dusty Hill

From ZZ Top's FB 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

I have listened to then since I was in Jr. High. But never bought one of their albums. I recently discovered they have a lot more music that I like, than I knew of years ago. What I have learned about them in recent times, has resulted in me having a lot more respect for those three.

RIP. I've been blessed to see them live twice with the first being around in '79 in Houston. What a loss.

Wow sad news. When I was a freshman in college I played their "Tres Hombres" album until I flat wore it out. They were scheduled to play Dickie's arena here in Ft Worth next month.

Oh dammit man! I grew up listening to them and even had a friend in the music business take me to Billy Gibbons condo in 1979. He was living off of Woodway and Sage at the time. Right off midtown loop. We just never think it will end. I think outta respect they will end ZZ Top.

here is some info I heard years ago. true or not unknown. the rolling stones had zz top as their open band on a tour. zz top was just as well liked as the stones so this upset mick jager alot. as of them dropping zz top this had great press for them. as i was told is why they were called that little band from texas.
he will never be replaced, only copied.
