For decades, ZZ Top (a.k.a “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas”) has flooded the airwaves and rocked stages across the globe with a wave of blues-infused classic rock and roll with a Texas twist! Their well-attended concerts are still stuff of legend, featuring classic hits like “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” “Jailhouse Rock” and “Sharp Dressed Man” as well as new songs like “I Gotsta Get Paid.” ZZ Top lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact – having been together for more than 40 years of rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio – and in 2004 the Texas trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
All told, the group possesses 11 gold records and seven platinum records. Their 1983 album, Eliminator, remains the group’s most commercially successful record, selling over 10 million units, and they rank 80th in total U.S. album sales, with more than 25 million total units. Released last fall, ZZ Top’s most recent album, La Futura, was their first in nearly a decade and it did not disappoint. The new album reflects the solid blues inspiration that has powered the band since the very beginning with a contemporary approach that underscores the group’s inclination to experiment and explore new sonic vistas.
