ZZ Top

Sylvie Simmons, Kerrang!, 1995

Incredible but true facts about ZZ Top. 1. Jimi Hendrix gave Billy Gibbons a guitar. 2. Dusty Hill wrote 'Tush' in ten minutes during a soundcheck. 3. Frank (hasn't got a) Beard races cars. 4. Billy and Dusty can eat cheese and crackers without getting bits of biscuits in their face fuzz. 5. ZZ got together for the first time in February 1970, started jamming on some blues boogie in C and 24 years later still haven't stopped!

Total word count of piece: 1981
