Venue: Pearl Concert Theater
ZZ Top is an American blues rock trio, formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. Its members are Billy Gibbons, Joseph Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard. The trio is one of the longest running rock bands to retain the same lineup, and until September 2006 had the same manager, Bill Ham.
They are best known for their Texas heritage, bearded, haggard look, reclusive mystique, hard-nosed business tactics, and blues-rock sound.
ZZ Top was inducted by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during the annual ceremony on March 15, 2004. Cub Koda wrote, "As genuine roots musicians, they have few peers; Gibbons is one of America's finest blues guitarists working in the hard rock idiom ... while Hill and Beard provide the ultimate rhythm section support."
In 1984, the Gillette Company reportedly offered Gibbons and Hill $1 million each to shave their beards for a television commercial. They allegedly declined, saying "We're too ugly without 'em."
