Do they call it quits or find a replacement after 6 months or a year?

They (Tull) say that there's no such thing as too old to rock'n'roll, but it must be close....

They'll continue with the guitar tech on bass until Billy doesn't want to do it anymore. I assume they'll be around for a few more years.

A report I heard today is that the new album is coming, and Dustys songs were already recorded.

I say they call it a day and Billy goes out on his own.
He already has three solo albums so between those and Top material he will do quite nicely.

Way more money to be made by touring as ZZ Top.

Yup. Just look at Steely Dan as an example. No promoter wanted to book a Donald Fagen tour.

At least he's a sharp dressed man in that pic. He looked like a bum they dragged off the streets the first show he played.
