Dusty Hill Will Be a Part of the Next ZZ Top Album, Says Billy Gibbons
Dusty Hill will be featured on a forthcoming ZZ Top album, Billy Gibbons revealed in a recent interview.
The late Rock and Roll Hall of famer already recorded bass and vocal parts for the record, Gibbons said.
“We’ve got a couple of things [with Dusty singing lead] that’ll make sense,” he told Variety of the follow-up to La Futura.
“I think the luck of the draw was, I handed Dusty a couple of lyric sheets and I said, ‘Hey, see if you can make heads or tails out of this, ” Gibbons said of Hill, who passed away at the age of 72.
He continued: “He said, ‘Can I sing it?’ I said, ‘Dusty, you could sing the calendar if you wanted to – people would love it.’ He goes, ‘Hey, that’s not a bad idea. If we ever get back to go to work, can we add the calendar into the show? I know all the words.’ I said, ‘Get in there. Go sing.’
