    I saw ZZ Top live one time when they opened for Deep Purple on the Smoke on the Water tour in the early 70's. Nobody had heard of them at the time but our group agreed they were pretty good. RIP Dusty.

    Re: RIP Dusty Hill

    Yes, very sad.

    I finally got to see them back in 2012 - Gang of Outlaws Tour with Gretchen Wilson and 3 Doors Down. They were amazing and so tight.

    He will be missed...

    Saw them open for the rolling stones at the astrodome in the early 80's general admission. Great music for enjoying a beer buzz.

    Re: RIP Dusty Hill

    Growing up in Texas as a young teenager, I was exposed to ZZ Top when they just started out. To say they influenced my taste in Rock music would be an understatement.

    Saw them 4 times.......the music that flowed out was hard to believe.
