ZZ Top’s Dusty Hill passed away this morning. In the video below he shares how he got started on the bass, his bass collection and special edition Fender Custom Shop Signature Precision Bass.
We know that the Texas boogie of “The Top” was a favorite of so many bike riders across all disciplines.
The band’s Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard said in a statement, “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ TOP fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’ You will be missed greatly, amigo.”
