ZZ TOP, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Texas trio, a/k/a “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact. Of course, there are only three of ’em – Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Frank Beard — a remarkable achievement remaining together through 5 decades of rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio.
As a touring unit, they’ve been without peer over the years, performing before millions of fans on numerous epochal tours around the globe where they’ve enthralled audiences from North America down to Argentina and over to Slovenia, from Australia to Sweden, from Russia to Japan and all points in between. Their iconography – beards, cars, girls and that magic keychain – transcend all bounds of geography and language.
ZZ TOP’s music is instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful and 100% Texas American in derivation. The band’s support of the blues is unwavering both as interpreters and preservers of its legacy. It was ZZ TOP that celebrated all the “founding fathers” by transforming a scrap of wood from Muddy Waters’ sharecropper’s shack into a beautiful guitar, dubbed the “Muddywood.” This totem was sent on tour as a fundraising focus for The Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale, Mississippi, site of Robert Johnson’s famed “Crossroads” encounter with the devil. ZZ TOP’s support and link to the blues remains as rock solid as the music they continue to play. They have sold millions of records over the course of their career, have been officially designated as Heroes of The State of Texas, have been referenced in countless cartoons and sitcoms and are true rock icons yet, 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.
