ZZ Top... I don't know if it's true, but someone once told me they got their name "because the only papers they sold in Arlen,TX at the time were ZigZag and Top papers".

The only member of ZZ Top without beard is Frank Beard, drummer for ZZ Top. ZZ Top was originally formed in 1969, in Houston Texas. The band, with the original members, is still making records and touring today, which makes them the second (the first =The Four Tops) longest running band that still has the same members as when they started.  Those members are Frank Beard (drums), Billy Gibbons (lead vocals and guitar), and Dusty Hill (vocals, bass, and keyboards).
