Sad news indeed. I finally got to see ZZ Top a couple years back at the Louisville Palace.

They just played a show at the Arena in Corbin, Ky this past weekend. My brother and a good friend went. Dusty wasn’t at the gig. I heard Dusty was scheduled to have hip surgery.

Fly High Dusty Hill !!!

Thanks for all the rockin tunes Dusty. Eliminator is so important, & I’ll always cherish it. 1 of my favorite records for driving through the desert.

RIP DH

Dusty, if you can read this, I owe you $15 for the copy of Tres Hombres I downloaded 20 years ago.

P.S. I refuse to believe you’re dead because there’s no way Frank outlived you.

RIP to one of, if not the, best rhythm bassists to ever live.

Looks like they are going to carry on.

Eddie Trunk shared a message he received from ZZ TOP frontman Billy Gibbons about the group's future plans.

Trunk tweeted: "Received this just now via text from @BillyFGibbons regarding passing of Dusty Hill @ZZTop . Billy told me okay to share w/fans: As Dusty said upon his departure, 'Let the show go on!'.and…with respect, we'll do well to get beyond this and honor his wishes."

So sad :(
I've always loved Zz Top. I wish Dusty had sang more lead though.
They should quit right away IMO.

RIP 😥

On a positive note, I’m now finally checking out ZZ Top for the first time besides Eliminator and the other classic rock radio staples….and damn they are one kick ass rock n roll band. And his bass tone and style was absolutely killer. Total badass.
