That's a damned shame.
Always liked ZZ Top
Bass and drums never showy but a rock solid base for Billy Gibbons who is a way better player than he gets credit for.

Just 72!
Yeh I know, old to you lot but for someone who's about to hit his three score and ten it's tomorrow afternoon.

ZZ Top apparently went synthy after appearing on the Old Grey Whistle Test with a fledgling OMD and being quite impressed with them...

This is a track from that session:

How Dusty Hill Avoided Becoming a 'Rock 'n' Roll A--hole'


https://ultimateclassicrock.com/dusty-hill-not-an-asshole/
Quote:

ZZ Top's Dusty Hill said that a late-'70s stint as an airport worker helped keep him from turning into "a rock 'n' roll asshole."

Exhausted from years of nonstop touring and recording, ZZ Top took what was initially supposed to be a 90-day break in 1977. The hiatus instead extended to two years, during which Hill and bandmate Billy Gibbons independently grew their trademark chest-length beards.
