ZZ Top (pronounced /?zi??zi? ?t?p/) is an American blues rock trio, formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. Its members are Billy Gibbons (vocals and guitar), Joseph Dusty Hill (vocals, bass, and keyboards), and Frank Beard (drums and percussion). ZZ Top is ranked number 44 on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock."[1]  The trio is one of the longest running rock bands to retain the same lineup, and until September 2006 had the same manager, Bill Ham.

ZZ Top was inducted by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during the annual ceremony on March 15, 2004. Cub Koda wrote, "As genuine roots musicians, they have few peers; Gibbons is one of America's finest blues guitarists working in the hard rock idiom ... while Hill and Beard provide the ultimate rhythm section support."[2]

ZZ Top almost always appear in public wearing sunglasses. Gibbons and Hill wear similar black clothing (usually biker leathers) and various head gear, usually cowboy hats or baseball caps, or bandanas. Gibbons may wear black biker boots and neck chains with beer can openers. Although Gibbons and Hill wear chest-length beards, drummer Beard sports only a trimmed mustache.

In 1984, the Gillette Company reportedly offered Gibbons and Hill $1 million each to shave their beards for a television commercial. They allegedly declined, saying "We're too ugly without 'em."[3] ZZ Top is the only major band today whose original lineup has been intact for over 40 years; their 41 years together are currently second among major U.S. recording acts to the Four Tops, whose original lineup remained intact from 1953 until the death of Lawrence Payton in 1997.
