ZZ Top's Dusty Hill Recuperating: Tour to Resume in May 2015


ZZ Top have announced that scheduled tour dates will resume in May 2015, stating, "Dusty's well being is paramount." The statement is in reference to Dusty Hill, the band’s bass guitarist, who, earlier, took a mis-step on his tour bus and injured his hip, whose energies are now aimed at rehab in expectation of a complete recovery.

The band’s management is now booking and re-scheduling an extensive run of dates starting in May. "We’re looking forward to getting out there and rockin’ it with Dusty in a big way...100%," bandmates Billy F Gibbons and Frank Beard commented. Dusty's usual upbeat wit was very much in evidence as he added that he'd like to see Slim Harpo's classic "Hip Shake" added to the band's repertoire.
