    Really sad - I saw them at the Manchester Apollo in 1983 - they were jaw-droppingly good. RIP Dusty - thank you for the music.

    Oooh... fuck!

    I saw a news story the other day that they'd played a gig with Billy's guitar tech standing in on bass.  I was not expecting this.

    Sad news, I remember watching them on OGWT in 1980 doing Cheap Sunglasses whilst trying to finish my homework...then covering "Francine" many times.

    My favourite Top song, and a great duet. 

    Really sad about this.

    RIP Dusty, another legend.

    .....I don't care if you're big in the city, nothing at all is what that means.

    Has there ever been a band with an unchanged lineup as long as the Top?

    Tres hombres become dos.  RIP Dusty.

    Aww jeez. He’s had health issues for a long time but it’s still a shock to hear he’s gone. Wonder if the band will keep going with Elwood or call it a day now?

    RIP Dusty.

    RIP Dusty. I love a bit of Top especially the 70s stuff. I'll dig out Rio Grande Mud out later.

    My favourite Top song, and a great duet. 

    Really sad about this. 

    That's my favourite too, I've never understood why it's not seen as one of their absolute classics.  And although I'm not a huge ZZ Top or Billy Gibbons fan, the solo is one of my absolute favourite guitar solos, by anybody, I just love the way it's structured.

    Glad I saw them live in Glasgow, 2017 for what was their final UK tour.

    Monumentally underrated band these days. The first 5-6 albums especially (and that’s before they achieved more commercial success with Eliminator).

    My most played on the iPod - Love ZZTop

    RIP Dusty - All round cool

    If you haven't listened to their first album, it's probably their best. Brown Sugar is monster.

    Wouldn’t say I’m the worlds biggest Zz Top fan but I do love a few of their songs. Seriously cool guys who played to their strengths and with style. A shame to see a cool old rocker pass on.
