InTheStudio with Redbeard
Sharp Dressed Men Of ZZ TOP
Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill And Frank Beard ‘InTheStudio’ For 10x Platinum Album Eliminator 30th Anniversary.
Dallas, TX - MARCH 18, 2013. North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands goes to Houston, Texas via Memphis Tennessee for the 30th anniversary of the ten million selling album Eliminator from ZZ Top. The little ole band from Texas carved out a unique niche in 1970s rock, but it would be the March 1983 release of Eliminator that would take ZZ Top from ‘bad and nationwide’ to international super stars. The introduction of synthesizers had actually occurred on ZZ Top’s 1981 album El Loco, but the sound was perfected along with their songwriting on Eliminator which delivered three hits “Gimme All Your Lovin’”, “Sharp Dressed Man”, and “Legs”. Billy Gibbons tells host Redbeard why Memphis was such an important place for ZZ Top to record many of their most popular albums.
“ When you get into Memphis and you start breathing that air and that musical vibe hits you, it’s just right there. It inspires you to write. You can go to Memphis and there’s just something that comes over you.”
