Rock and Roll Hall of Famer dies, aged 72
Dusty Hill, the bass player from legendary rock band ZZ Top has died, aged 72.
Hill, who had recently suffered a hip injury, died in his sleep, according to a statement from bandmates Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard that they released on Instagram.
"We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX,” it read.
"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."
ZZ Top were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
I only ever saw ZZ Top live in concert once, but they were absolutely amazing performers and showmen.
