The little band from [[EverythingIsBigInTexas Texas]] that could, '''ZZ Top''' is a [[LongRunner long-running]] BluesRock band from [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Houston]] composed of guitarist/vocalist Billy Gibbons, bassist/keyboardist/vocalist [[PunnyName Dusty Hill]] and drummer Frank Beard ([[NonIndicativeName who, ironically, has the shortest beard]]). Formed in 1969, they are the longest-running rock band with the same line-up (with Music/GoldenEarring and then Music/{{Rush}} close behind them).
