TIMELINE

ZZ Topbutton.gif (123 bytes) ZZ Top formed in 1969 in Texas with members Billy Gibbons on guitar and lead vocals, Dusty Hill on bass and vocals, and Frank Beard on drums. Gibbons first became involved with a band called 'The Coachmen' in the mid-60s which later became 'Moving Sidewalks.' By 1970, ZZ Top was formed with Gibbons, Lanier Grieg and Dan Mitchell who were soon replaced with Hill and Beard. ZZ Top has transcended decades in the music industry with their mix of rock, boogie and blues - while keeping their music fun and their trademarks beards and sunglasses.
