Rock Stars react to Dusty Hill’s (ZZ Top bassist) death:

Paul Stanley (Kiss)

“WOW! Dusty Hill. What an icon. @ZZTop’s bassist forever. So unique. Always a gentleman from the days of us opening for them through the recent days of them opening for us. I don’t know what to say but “Thank you” and “Rest however you damn well choose!”

Ozzy Osbourne

Rest In Peace #DustyHill of @ZZTop. My thoughts go out to @BillyfGibbons and Frank Beard and all the #ZZTop fans around the world

Lita Ford

“RIP Dusty Hill. Deepest sympathy to the ZZ Top family. “Great artists never die”!”

Vernon Reid (Living Colour)

“Dusty Hill was the kind of musician that could be in a world famous band, & be satisfied with making it work. Like Rick Laird, who also passed on recently, nobody seeming to notice. Getting it done with humility is the opposite of the narcissism that fuels modern music culture.”

The Doors

“The Doors team is saddened to hear about the passing of @ZZTop’s Dusty Hill. RIP.”

Paul Young

“It’s with heavy heart that I have to say goodbye to one member of That Lil’ Ol Band From Texas: RIP Dusty Hill from ZZ Top. I have loved this band since I was 14 & they are without doubt the coolest band on the planet! My condolences to his family, Frank & Rev. Billy G”
