Earlier in July, ZZ Top had announced that Hill would not play some upcoming shows due to a hip injury. Known for his bushy beard and sunglasses, Hill played with ZZ Top for over 50 years. "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'," the statement from Gibbons and Beard said. "You will be missed greatly, amigo." https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-58006978 There goes another part of my childhood. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
