The group originally met each other in Houston, Texas and that was in the year 1969, so they have definitely been around for a really long time. Of course they were still pretty young back in the late sixties so they were just starting to play as a group together, and back then is when they decided that they should all grow their beards out and start being this goofy group with super long beards and kind of make it their thing. Well, as you can imagine the beards definitely paid off in the long run, and although they may have gotten made fun of at first when their beards were all scruffy they got past that stage and really started jamming out with some of the longest beards of any guitarists on tour.
Sometimes I wonder how hard it must be to play guitar with such a long beard like that. It’s got to be pretty difficult just because your long ass beard might get in the way of your fingers or strings as you’re playing your instrument in front of a live audience. But for ZZ Top this is all just a part of the show and the business, and they have been seriously good at business since their founding and have garnered up a huge following in which everyone is all about them and freaks out just like a good southern crowd should when a good band comes to town ready to put on a show like ZZ Top.
With big hits like Sharp Dressed Man and Gimme All Your Lovin you know this band has a really unique, southern rock sound that is just exactly what you would expect from a really cool band that likes to rock out and has some great southern roots that makes them recall have some unique songs and great lyrics.
I love ZZ Top, just like pretty much everyone else in the United States who grew up with classic rock and got to see ZZ Top turn into worldwide sensations, and when it really comes down to it you have to give it up to them because of those beards because that is kind of what made them so famous, and if you can be a famous rock star and be known for a beard like that then you should definitely get a bunch of money, which is exactly what happened to the rich and famous band ZZ Top.
