Sharp-Dressed Men

The dudes of ZZ Top bring their beards to the Hard Rock.

In 1984 the ad wizards at the Gillette razor company offered Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill, lead vocalists of legendary blues rock band ZZ Top, $1 million each to shave off their famously thick, long, awesome beards. The men Wisely turned down the offer. “We’re too ugly without ’em,” they demurred. It’s true the ZZ Top guys aren’t known for being handsome. But thanks to their blockbuster Eighties hit album Eliminator, they became known as the cool dudes who always had a bevy of hot chicks around to stroke their beards and ride in their sweet cherry-red hot rod. Not too shabby.

Tonight at 8, you can see the “little ol’ band from Texas” at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. They’ve been steadily crankin’ out albums, so expect to hear some new material amid classic hits like “Tush,” “Cheap Sunglasses,” “Tube Snake Boogie,” and, of course, “Legs.”
