We've seen ZZ Top 9 times and have enjoyed every show With tears in my eyes, prayers go out for Dusty and the guys. RIP Brother.

They just played not too long ago at the Delaware county fair in Manchester Iowa. Sad deal...Sounds like a tech for the band will fill in. RIP Dusty Hill. You will be missed... angel

They were scheduled to play in Simpsonville (SC) tonight. Local Classic Rock was setting up at the venue when the statement from the band was made. Sad. My 1st concert was ZZTop o n their Tajas tour. RIP.

They played at a summer park concert series here in town a few years back. My one and only time listening to them, although they have been hear many times in the past. Great band with some great original songs over the years. RIP, Dusty.

Sad to hear. Glad I went to see them about 3 years ago. I've gotten lucky the past few years seeing some of these older bands before things like this happen. Saw Tom Petty for the first time on his last tour before he went.

Seen ZZ half a dozen times, was looking forward to seeing them again in Milwaukee this fall. I did hear they had replaced him for the tour this year for unspecified reasons, guess we will find out now. Talked with Reverend Billy several times at car shows, but never saw Dusty hanging around. RIP Mr. Hill, one of THE best rockin' blues band ever! musik

Gods speed Dusty. ZZ Top is one of my favorite bands, timeless music IMO. I saw them on their Recycler tour, don't remember what year but it was after the Eliminator tour. Just a little three piece band out of Texas.

One of my favorite bands of all time. I wore out several copies of Eliminator on cassette back in my youth.

I officially feel old now.

Caught ZZ front and center on the After Buner tour (remember festival seating?). Watching him do his thing up close and personal was just amazing.

I guess we are all going to walk that path eventually but it's still sad when the event occurs. I regularly play "Master of Sparks", "Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers", or "Sharp Dressed Man" when I'm in a funk. Always gets me out of it.


Wife says too many cars, liquidation coming soon......

I found some mementos from the concert we went to in 1991 in Nashville TN, the Black Crows opened. We left through a side door and sitting there were three tour busses each with a little wooden step on the ground in front of the door. Etched on the glass of one of the bus doors was "Wipes yo feets".

The key chain was all I could afford.
