This sturdy American blues-rock trio from Texas, which consists of Billy Gibbons (guitar), Dusty Hill (bass), and Frank Beard (drums), formed in 1970 in and around Houston. Their first two albums reflected the strong blues roots and Texas humor of the band. Their third album (Tres Hombres) gained them national attention with the hit "La Grange," a signature riff tune to this day, based on John Lee Hooker's "Boogie Chillen." Their success continued unabated throughout the '90s, peaking in the mid-'80s with Eliminator and Afterburner. ZZ Top play music that is always instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful, and 100-percent American in derivation. ~ Cub Koda
