ZZ Top - Blue Jean Blues

ZZ Top is the longest running lineup of any rock band in history with Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard being the original and the only members the band has had.
ZZ Top began playing together in 1969 and got their musical influences from listening to what was known then as the X radio stations. The blues programs that were broadcast by these outlaw radio stations from South of the Texas border in Mexico were where the guys heard such greats as Muddy Waters, BB King and Freddie King.
ZZ Top took the blues to another level not far off of the British bands interpretation but their Texas pride and love for rock and roll made the blues guitar licks of the original blues masters their own brand.
