Ok, before you start wondering, here is the evidence.

1. ZZ Top were huge in the 80s. In terms of Rock n Roll lore, this means intense female interest. No three members of da Top were exactly Brad Pitt types but, even so, they would've got 'interest'. Unfortunately, the one thing generally recognised to be a bit of a 'no-no' for females is excessive facial hair. Two members of the band sported such excess and, as such, might reasonabl;y have been thought of as targeting an entirely different group. In effect I'm suggesting that both Dusty Hill and Billy Gibbons are bears.

2. Their one non-bearded member, the ironically named Frank Beard, does at times have a startling resemblence to Tom Selleck: an actor that throughout the 80s developed a large gay following. That's another niche covered!

3. The video to their hit single 'Legs' proved highly sexually arousing at the time for teenage boys like myself. So far so good, except that the same could be said for the excessive stockings and suspenders count of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Relax video.

4. The wrote a song called Rough Boy.

Bears or not, they were embracing drum machines way before their contemporaries.

I have indeed, but you have to admit that there's a persuasively strange logic to my claim

Just remember who you heard it from first. That's all.

I'm thinking that a whole lot of ZZ fans, having still not quite come to terms with Freddy Mercury, might be in for an even bigger shock when discovering that 'Gimme all your Lovin' was not about quite the type of lovin' they had in mind.

I saw ZZ Top live a couple months ago. They kick so much ass. If ZZ Top is gay, I don't want to be straight.

As a man witha full beard I can assure you that the pussy gets wet the nipples get hard and the mouths open slightly in anticipation when the ladies see the beard coming.

ha!!!!

ZZ Top will outrock 99% of what is out there.

did anyone see that concert o guitarists that was broadcast a few years ago, some sort of guitar tribute to guitars, and eric clapton was in charge of it?
the final night, the final slot, was given to ZZ TOP, because HOLY FUCK can they rock a show.

Actually, I hate to let you down, but my wife used to work in a strip club in Austin, and they would come in. Of course they could have been gay if they were just looking at the shoes, but that wouldn't explain "La Grange", now would it? I'm sure there are some southern bears who are mighty let down, but these hombres save their "pearl necklaces" for the lucky ladies.

Did any of you know that Dusty Hill is Hank Hill's cousin: http://youtu.be/fBNwh4KBWLI
I looked for the entire episode, but couldn't find it. Watch it if you can.

Ten years ago or so, my dad was a Pharmacist at a Albertson's in Houston. Dusty would come in with regularity and women (mostly women) would line up for pictures and hugs. Old and young, Dusty had time for them all. Before starting a major tour, they still usually play a local venue under another name here Beaumont or Port Arthur (where they got their start) and their fee......all you can eat BBQ Crabs, shrimp and beer.
