Loved their early music. They certainly had a style all their own too - full long beards when it wasn't cool. RIP

For those who think they've never seen ZZ Top if you saw Back to the Future III they were the band playing in the 1800s.

RIP sharply dressed man.

RIP. Great band, lots of good stuff that never got much airtime.

Thank you for some very nice toe-tapping, get-up-and-go music.

Saw them at the Ryman (old Grand Old Opry house) a few years ago. They rocked the house!

One of the first albums I got through Columbia House 10-tapes-for -a-penny was Eliminator. Later thought Deguello was a greatest hits album. LOL-RIP

one of the most depressing facts of living in the modern age,
is knowing the how and the when of when all your heroes die...

I still remember the year both Bowie & Prince died.
That's when it hit me...the realization...
