This sure has been a terrible week for music as Monday we learned of the death of Metal Church’s Mike Howe, Tuesday’s news was the passing of Slipknot founding drummer Joey Jordison and now the band ZZ Top has shared the sad news about the passing of their bassist Dusty Hill. Born Joseph Michael Hill, the musician passed away in his sleep and was 72. Their statement follows the photo we have taken from their Official Facebook Page.
“We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that “Blues Shuffle in C.”
You will be missed greatly, amigo. Frank & Billy
