The First Time They Played Without Him

ZZ Top recently played at the Village Commons in New Lenox, Illinois without bassist Dusty Hill. Hill apparently suffered a leg injury and had to seek treatment. Longtime guitar tech Elwood Francis stepped in and took over the bass duties. Check out the fan-shot videos below.

“The members of ZZ Top, Billy [Gibbons], and Frank [Beard], would like to share that Dusty, their fearless bass player, is on a short detour back to Texas to address a hip issue,” the band said in a statement. “They await a speedy recovery and [to] have him back pronto.”

“Per Dusty’s request the show must go on!” they continued. “With that directive, ZZ Top has put the services of Mr. Elwood Francis, their trusted guitar tech of the past two decades, into play with his slide guitar, bass guitar and harmonica playing in full swing.”

“And with Elwood to our right, rest assured ZZ Top will deliver their good time, signature show,” frontman Billy Gibbons added, “Elwood securing the bottom end continues the delivery [of] those famous three chords we all dig.”

Meanwhile, Gibbons previously revealed that they’re working on a new album, which might arrive later this year.
