ZZ Top: A Top Ten (RIP Dusty)

The music world lost a rock-n-blues legend a few days ago. Dusty Hill, founding member and bass player for the rock-n-blues trio ZZ Top, put away his bass for the last time. In honor of Dusty, I put together my top ten ZZ Top songs. I know what some of you will say, “What? No Sharp Dressed Man or Legs on the list?” Although popular songs, I was never a fan of either. I was always amazed at the musical power that came from just three guys, not unlike the power  of the trio in Rush, but yet different. RIP Dusty. You will be missed. 

  1. La Grange
  2. I’m Bad, I’m Nationwide
  3. Tush
  4. My Heads in Mississippi
  5. Got Me Under Pressure
  6. Pearl Necklace
  7. Gimme All Your Lovin’
