Well crap - RIP Dusty Hill

| No Comments

ZZ Top basist.  Really good musicians.  Their songs sound similar to me so getting through more than an album side is a bit of a chore but each song by itself is a polished gemstone. They were the first major band to use the pentatonic scale for blues.  Billy's guitar tone is incredible.

From their website:

Dusty Hill has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX
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.

Frank & Billy

Roling Stone has a nice obituary.
