ZZ Top

ZZ TOP lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact. Of course, there are only three of them – Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard -- but it’s still a remarkable achievement that they’re still very much together after more than 40 years of rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio. With the release of each of their albums the band has explored new ground in terms of both their sonic approach and the material they’ve recorded. ZZ TOP is the same but always changing.

ZZ TOP’s music is instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful, and 100% Texas American in derivation. The band’s support for the blues is unwavering both as interpreters of the music and preservers of its legacy. They have sold millions of records over the course of their career, have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, have been referenced in countless cartoons and sitcoms, and are true rock icons; but, against all odds, they’re really just doing what they’ve always done. They’re real and they’re surreal and they’re ZZ TOP.
