El rock despide a Dusty Hill de ZZ Top

El mundo del rock está despidiendo con mensajes en las redes sociales a Dusty Hill, bajista de ZZ Top durante medio siglo, fallecido a los 72 años.

El músico estadounidense falleció mientras dormía en su casa en Houston. Así lo confirmaron en un comunicado sus dos compañeros, Billy Gibbons y Frank Beard.

La pareja, por cierto continuará con la banda con un nuevo bajista, pues ese era el deseo del propio difunto. De hecho, estaban de gira estos días y Dusty Hill se perdió un concierto por problemas de salud que resultaron ser letales, siendo sustituido por el técnico de guitarras del grupo. La intención de Billy y Frank es retomar los conciertos en agosto.

Received this just now via text from @BillyFGibbons regarding passing of Dusty Hill @ZZTop . Billy told me okay to share w/fans: As Dusty said upon his departure, " Let the show go on!".and...with respect, we'll do well to get beyond this and honor his wishes.

We are devastated to hear about Dusty's passing. We were so blessed to share the stage with the great Dusty and ZZ Top many times, and if that wasn't Rock and Roll heaven, I don't know what is. The show we did together just last week would be his last. So heartbreaking.

I hate that my social media has become more of an obituary but such is life, young or old, we are but mere mortals when our time comes.
RIP to the GREAT Dusty Hill of @ZZTop. Thank you for the decades of music!!
