Heavy Load: ZZ Top's Dusty Hill

A man with a huge beard and an equally voluminous sense of humour, in 2010 Dusty Hill told Classic Rock about shooting himself and coincidentally what he'd like written on his tombstone

Dusty Hill has been the bassist/vocalist with ZZ Top since 1969.

Born in Dallas, he’s renowned for his voluminous beard as much as his trademark playing, and also for his underrated vocal ability.

Over the years, Hill has kept a low profile compared to bandmate Billy Gibbons, but he has appeared in several TV shows, most notably playing himself in an episode of the animated series King Of The Hill
