    RIP Dusty Hill

    Damn, was about to buy tickets for them at Bethel Woods. RIP to one third of an awesome group.

    One of my favorite rocks bands. First saw them at an Upstate fair as a teenager, they paused in the middle of “La Grange” , stroked their beards until the crowd went nuts , and then returned to face melting blues jamming. For a three piece band, they hit above their weight class


    RIP

    Saw the "Worldwide Texas" tour at Boston Garden in 1976, second big concert I ever went to. They mention it in the linked piece in the OP. Longhorn cattle, barbed wire, sand and cacti on stage with them. Godddamn was that shit loud. Saw them a few other times but nothing topped that first one. RIP Dusty.

    ZZ Top was one of the bands a friend got me into back in elementary school expanding my rock n roll world. I will always have that spot though I haven’t really listened much these days, bough Nationwide played on the local station this morning and it was good. RIP

    Don't think I'd say they stole it but there's similarities in the intros

    RIP Dusty

    The only band I was ever a member of a fan club

    I saw them in concert in early 2000's and they just weren't the same live anymore

    Ironic for Montessori, which is supposed to be able to deal with unusual learners, they were uptight assholes

    They ended up asking him to leave (& subsequently 3 other boys who were “energetic”)

    Ahhh, i wouldnt have put those 2 bands together for anything but it is similar, i guess. Im sure they influenced them to some degree. Thats music. They all draw from someone

    Because the teacher was sick of Freebird.

    Think you could convincingly argue VH stole it from ZZ Top who stole it from Johnny Lee Hooker who stole it from some guy in MS or Chicago who's been lost to time, no?

    For a number of years as a kid I only knew them as the guys with those funny videos with the car and girls, had no idea until much later that they were more than that. Happened to watch a pretty good documentary about them this past winter. I guess this is probably it:

    Sure it was just that when Benny mentioned Van Halen taking from "Heard It On the X" I thought of "Hot For Teacher" right off.

    Same here, bunny does have some musical knowledge, sorta.
    Pretty much a four bar riff, in E.
    The turn around on the fourth bar makes it groove.

    Shiiit, that's sad. Dusty held it down like a boss, I never could wrap my head around how those guys could make such a wall of sound. Very glad to have had the chance to see them play.

    Good one:

    From an interview with Billy Gibbons in 2018: "You guys have been touring together for like 50 years, whats the secret"? Gibbons: "Separate buses". Thanks for the music Mr. Hill.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.
