Did You Know?
- Very early in their career, ZZ Top had a gig in Alvin, Texas, where they went on stage behind a curtain, and when it went up there was only one person in the house. He looked confused or nervous, and started to get up to leave, but they begged him to stay, played an hour set, then bought him a Coke for sticking around - and then played an encore! Hill says that man still comes to their shows, but won't ever tell them his name. He just says, "remember me, I was at that show!" and they say of course they remember him.
- Dusty Hill: We've never said we're a blues band; we are interpreters of the blues.
Atom User Reviews
A good-natured ride at first, its limited scope grows more apparent as it goes; still, a feel-good approach is unlikely to hurt it as it begins a road-show release concurrent with the band's 50th-anniversary tour.
Director Sam Dunn weaves wonderful mythology that leaves you happy for the band’s longevity and ready for more from the sharp-dressed men.
ZZ Top: That Little Ol’Band from Texas is a straight, no-chaser band biography documentary, lacking flash and big name peers singing their praises and expert testimony to park them in their rightful place in music history.
