Happy Birthday to ZZ Top legend Dusty Hill!


main-150Metal Odyssey would like to extend a tremendously LOUD – Happy Birthday! – to legendary bassist and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Dusty Hill of ZZ Top! Dusty Hill turns a real cool 60 today, May 19, 2009. I have been fortunate enough to see the legendary ZZ Top live in concert, (around 1995 – if I am correct), at the Hartford Civic Center. The opening act was none other than… the amazing George Thorogood! That was one incredible night of Rock N’ Roll! Yes, I did buy a souvenir from that concert, it was the infamous ZZ Top keychain. Man, I loved that ZZ Top keychain, it was made out of pure Metal too. I just lost that wonderful souvenir about two years ago… it is a darn shame. Anytime I held that keychain in view, someone (yes even total strangers) would always say: “Hey, isn’t that the ZZ Top keychain”? It was quite a popular conversation piece for me. 

My favorite ZZ Top album ever, is “One Foot In The Blues” – released on November 22, 1994. This album is all heavy Blues, baby! The ZZ Top brand of Rockin’ Blues.This album holds the honor and distinction of being the only CD that I listened to the very morning of my Wedding Day. You betcha. This just so happens to be the CD that I listened to on that entire special day, plus it was a gift from my gorgeous wife to be as well . Dusty Hill, thank you for the fabulous Rock N’ Roll and heavy Blues you have created with ZZ Top all these years! I definitely have cool and special memories associated with the tunes of ZZ Top. I certainly applaud and truly appreciate your musicianship.
