ZZ Top is an American rock band that formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. The band comprises guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons, bassist and co-lead vocalist Dusty Hill, and drummer Frank Beard.
One of the few major label recording groups to have held the same lineup for more than 40 years, ZZ Top has been praised by critics and fellow musicians alike for their technical mastery. Their third album, Tres Hombres, catapulted them to national attention with the hit “La Grange,” still one of the band’s signature pieces.
A certified rock institution, contemporary in every way, yet still completely connected to the founding fathers of the genre, ZZ Top’s music is instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful and 100 percent Texas American in derivation. Other recognizable hits include “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Cheap Sunglasses”.
