ZZ Top is an American rock trio formed in late 1969 in Houston, Texas, US.
The band holds the distinction of being among the few rock bands still composed of its original recording members for nearly 40 years and until September 2006, the same manager/producer/image maker, Bill Ham.
ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 15, 2004.
Their song lyrics often feature sexual innuendo and humor.
In 1984, the Gillette Company reportedly offered Gibbons and Hill $1 million each to shave their beards for a television commercial but they declined, stating "We're too ugly without 'em".
In 2003, ZZ top released a final RCA album, Mescalero, an album thick with harsh Gibbons guitar and featuring a hidden track- a cover version of "As Time Goes By"
