The Best of ZZ Top

ZZ Top is an American rock band from Houston, Texas. Formed in 1969, the group consists of Billy Gibbons (guitar and vocals), Dusty Hill (bass and vocals), and Frank Beard (percussion). ZZ Top’s early sound was rooted in blues but eventually grew to exhibit contemporary influences. Throughout their career they have maintained a sound based on Hill’s and Beard’s rhythm section support, accentuated by Gibbons’ guitar and vocal style. Their lyrics often gave evidence of band’s humor and thematically focus on personal experiences and sexual innuendos.

Maintaining the same members for over forty years, ZZ Top has released 14 studio albums and are among the most popular rock groups, having sold more than 50 million albums worldwide,half of this figure concerning the United States alone. They have won three VMAs, and in 2004, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    “La Grange” is the only ZZ Top song I like enough to listen to regularly, but I always loved their videos on MTV. And you already know if you watch Bones that Billy Gibbons is a recurring character (playing himself, as Angela’s dad).
