    ZZ Top holds the record for the only American rock band to have the same members for 30 or more years. That was a good run......

    Dusty died in his sleep in his Houston home. I always thought he would go in his Vegas home. Dusty recently had a hip injury that was kept pretty quiet. ZZ canceled several bookings.

    Anyway RIP Dusty....Godspeed on your journey.

    When asked a few years ago, how they did that, the answer was separate tour buses.

    “People ask how we’ve stayed together so long,” he told The Charlotte Observer in 2015. “I say separate tour buses. We got separate tour buses early on, when we probably couldn’t afford them. That way we were always glad to see each other when we got to the next city.”

    Actually it's fifty years and yes Canadians ARE kinda like Americans. You know, like the way suburbanites claim to be from a big city.
