I just read that Dusty Hill passed away. I've listened to him lay down the solid foundation bottom end in that band for years.

Yes, very sad, I think ZZ Top has the distinction of being the longest running band with their original lineup. There is a great documentary on them on Netflix or Amazon Prime.

I love those guys!

Love me some ZZ Top, and I love Dusty's bass playing. An absolute anchor, in the best possible sense. RIP Dusty.

Deguello, yeah. Acutally, I never knew Dusty was singing. I guess I was always wrapped up in the song and the music.

My buddy and I spent many an hour in the 80s chasing women and riding around in the Gran Prix with a powerful stereo rig cranked to Deguello and Eliminator cassettes. We also partied a lot to that music.

I think between us, we have all the music recorded to that point.

Just a ton of music from three guys. I guess BG will continue on? but it's an end of an era with Dusty gone for sure.

I see someone else posted in Gone Home about Dusty a couple days after my post here. I thought this was the place for the death notice. Oh well Oh Well
