ZZ Top /ˈzztɒp/ is an American rock band formed in 1969 in HoustonTexas. The band has, since 1970, consisted of bassist and lead vocalist Dusty Hillguitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons (the band’s leader, main lyricist and musical arranger), and drummer Frank Beard. “As genuine roots musicians, they have few peers”, according to former musician, critic and collector Michael “Cub” Koda. “Gibbons is one of America’s finest blues guitarists working in the arena rock idiom […] while Hill and Beard provide the ultimate rhythm section support.”[1]

The band released its first album—called ZZ Top’s First Album—in 1971. Beginning with blues-inspired rock, the band incorporated new wavepunk rock and dance-rock by using synthesizers. The band is also known for its humorous lyrics laced with double entendres and innuendo.
