ZZ TOP what can we say about ZZ TOP which hasn’t already been said?

Perhaps remind you that these American blues rock legends are originally from Houston in Texas and their names are Billy F. Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard.

During their career of almost 50 years, the group which has never change its formation since its first album in 1969, has sold over 70 million albums throughout the world.

To talk about ZZ TOP means talking about Billy F. Gibbons who is renowned for being an out-of-this-world guitarist classed by the Rolling Stones magazine at number 32 in its best guitarists of all times ranking. Spotted by Jimmy Hendrix who took him on as opening act in the 1960’s, Billy was just a teenager, born in 1949.

The coming of ZZ TOP to the Sierre Blues Festival has always been the festival’s founder, Silvio Calderi’s dream.

Afters 8 years of hard work, of patience, of waiting, but never giving up, and thanks to some precious help, the dream can now become reality.
