ZZ Top Biography
ZZ Top is an American rock band formed in Houston, Texas in 1969. Created by lead singer and guitarist Billy Gibbons, the band’s original lineup consisted of Gibbons, bassist Lanier Greig, and drummer Dan Mitchell. However, Greig and Mitchell were quickly replaced by Frank Beard and Dusty Hill.
In 1970, the band signed with London Records and soon released their debut album, ZZ Top’s First Album in 1971, which was influenced by hard rock, metal, and southern rock. The album was somewhat successful, although neither the album nor any singles from the album appeared on Billboard charts.
A year later, the band released their second album, Rio Grande Mud. The album peaked on the 104th spot on the Billboard 200 and was met with mixed reviews.
In 1973, the band gained commercial stardom with the release of their third studio album, Tres Hombres, which peaked at 8 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album also produced the extremely popular track, “La Grange.” In 2012, the album ranked at number 490 on a list of the 500 greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone. By this point in their career, everyone was looking for ZZ Top tickets.
Eliminator, ZZ Top’s eighth studio album was released in 1983, the second album released after the band’s two year hiatus in the late seventies and early eighties. The album was the band’s most successful and was certified Diamond for selling over 10 million copies in the United States, a rare feat for any musician or band. The album featured popular singles singles, including “Legs,” “Gimme All Your Lovin,” and “Sharp Dressed Man.”
In 2004, ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where they were given an induction speech by Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones. In 2012, ZZ Top released their fifteenth studio album, La Futura, which reached the number six spot on the Billboard 200.
