    Ah, man.............
    They were slated to play near here in October and I was considering going. Haven't seen them live since the Eliminator tour in the 80s.
    R.I.P. Dusty.

    Bummer. ZZ Top always seemed like a class act to me.

    Tres Hombres is not only my favorite albums by ZZTop, but an all time favorite.
    Always dug Dusty singing tush & balinese.

    So sad. Loved this band so much. What a loss.
    Praying for his family.
    After 50 years of friendship and a spectacular carrer I whish the two remaining members strength.
    RIP Dusty.
    You will be remembered.

    Rest in bluesy peace, Dusty. And thanks for all you gave us. ZZ Top has long been one of my favorite bands, and I have seen their shows more than any other in my life. Thanks for being the foundation of the funkiest trio ever.
