The idea that Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard are ‘Legends’, is nothing new. We’ve known that since the seventies! Now it’s official, as the greatest Texas trio (with Stevie Ray’s Double Trouble a very near second), will be honoured at The Classic Rock Roll of Honour, to be held in London November 13th. Previous winners included Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and Ozzy.
ZZ Top’s guitarist, Gibbons says of the award, “ZZ Top band members are excitedly gearing up to attend the 2012 Classic Rock Awards, a celebration held in a timely manner following the long awaited release of the new ZZ album, La Futura … we’ve stuck it out long enough to where this once unpredictable style, which has no basis other tan oddness, brought us back into vogue.”
This past June ZZ came out via iTunes with the EP called Texicala, featuring four tunes from their upcoming album, including “I Gotsta Get Paid”. Look for La Futura where you buy music as of September 11th.
