    Dang I'm sorry to hear that.

    I'll be honest, I couldn't really get into their music other than the song sharp-dressed man, but I give credit where credit is due. Legendary beard and legendary band. RIP

    Saw them in Statesboro in '71 or '72. Great concert. Great band. Rest in Peace Dusty Hill.

    Didn't see the Doc, but these guys were low keyed, down to earth and just loved what they did. Classic in all sense of Rock n' Roll and fame that comes with it. RIP....

    End of an era right there!

    I was in college in the late 80's, they were always playing on my Clarion G80D with 3 Ga-505/ 100 Watt amps through 4 Babb 6X9s, I had skreet cred in Americus, Ga

    Just takes me back to times of gimmie all your lovin, I visited LaGrange just because they sang about the word and Lordy, Lordy, Lordy - hot girls with long legs!!!

    My prayers go out to the boys and I would love to hear the words of Reverend Billy G's eulogy!

    RIP Dusty, the 4 string pluck will always be ours because of you!

    Helped Billy Gibbons at my hotel once. Definitely one of the cooler guys I’ve ever dealt with and couldn’t be nicer. I was never a huge ZZ Top guy, but I respect them.

    I read a statement from Billy that said ZZ Top would continue in his honor. It stinks though, because I had tickets for the Greenville, SC show the other day. So glad I got to see them in 2019 before all the touring stopped.

    I'll post a full report.

    They're in Valdosta tomorrow night for any of you South GA folks.

  • ChopperChopper Posts: 1,215 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Hottest concert I ever been to in my life.

    They didn’t mention Dusty one time...all business.

    Billy had a longhorns sticker on his guitar.

    I'm shocked they didn't even mention it. But... I can see both sides of doing that. I wouldn't want to seem like I was "milking it" or something like that. But the first show just days after... well I'd understand that. At least introduce the sub/new bassist.
