ZZ Top & the famous Billy F. Gibbons

Dusty Hill - bass, keyboards, vocals        Billy F. Gibbons - vocals, guitar

     ZZ Top is an American rock band, sometimes referred to as "That Little Ol' Band from Texas". Their style has come to incorporate elements of arena, Southern, and boogie rock. The band is from Houston, Texas, formed in 1969.

   They were signed to London Records in 1970 and by the mid-1970s, they were among the most popular touring acts in the United States and broke various concert attendance feats.
