I saw ZZ Top live way back in '75 when their Fandango album came out and Tush was a big hit on the radio. Good times.
RIP Dusty, and thanks for the low notes.
And I just bought tickets for the upcoming tour. RIP Dusty.
While I’m happy to hear they had been gearing up for a tour – that’s doubly sucky.
Rock in peace, Dusty.
Another legendary bass player gone…RIP Dusty…you were one of the reasons why I wanted to learn bass.
Dusty Hill was my main inspiration to take up Bass.
It’s a Sad Day.
Another icon leaving us. Rip Dusty
RIP Dusty. You made playing the Blues so much fun!
You will be sorely missed.
They said they will still play according to what Dusty would want.
Thanks for the info Gunny. I know they played a concert last night (I think) in Tuscaloosa. My tickets are for the Saturday after Thanksgiving here in Lubbock.
When Dusty was having hip trouble, he gave Billy and Frank his blessing. The new bassist is Dusty’s guitar tech (or Billy’s).
Glad I could help a bit.
Longtime guitar tech, Elwood Francis.
Billy said: “Dusty emphatically grabbed my arm and said, ‘Give Elwood the bottom end and take it to the Top’. He meant it, amigo. He really did.”
I watched some of the concert footage with Elwood…he did Dusty proud
