ZZ Top: What's The Deal With The Beards

ZZ Top brings their brand of Texas rock and blues to suburban Chicago’s Ravinia Festival tonight.

They were scheduled to play there last summer but an injury to bassist Dusty Hill caused the cancellation of the show and the rest of the tour…more on his injury in the Gallery.

ZZ Top was formed by guitarist Billy Gibbons in 1969 with Hill and drummer Frank Beard joining within the year. Gibbons is considered one the world’s best guitarists. He was ranked 32nd in Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

Here’s a Gallery of photos and music of ZZ Top


This was another piece in Gallery Week. Tomorrow there’s a gallery about therapy and therapists. Since Jimi Hendrix was mentioned in this blog, here’s one about Mr. Hendrix and the Beatles.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
