Dusty Hill, RIP

Sort of surprising. It doesn't look like anyone here mentioned the passing of Dusty Hill, bass player and founder of ZZ Top way back around 1969.
Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard announced yesterday, 28 July 2021 that Dusty passed away at the age of 72. No cause of death was stated although he had recently left a show to return home due to a "hip issue." Elwood Francis filled in on bass guitar for Dusty. Apparently Dusty wants the band to go on with Elwood. Here is "Legs" (Live in Texas)
Rest In Peace, Dusty
