ZZ TOP A.K.A “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” lay undisputed claim to being the longest-running major rock band with original personnel intact. In 2004, the Texas trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In Houston in 1969, ZZ TOP formed from the core of two rival bands, Billy’s Moving Sidewalks and Frank and Dusty’s American Blues. The new group went on to record the appropriately titled ZZ Top’s First Album and Rio Grande Mud that reflected their strong blues roots. Their third, 1973’s Tres Hombres, catapulted them to national attention with the hit “La Grange,” still one of the band’s signature pieces today.
ZZ TOP has sold millions of records over the course of their career, have been officially designated as Heroes of The State of Texas. In 2012, they released the album La Futura.
