ZZ Top is arguably the most famous rock band ever to emerge from Houston, and as the city continues to deal with the devastating flooding and other damage caused by Hurricane Harvey, the Texas trio is offering some words of support for their neighbors.
“Houston has played host to ZZ Top as our home base since we first banded together more than four decades ago, making us especially concerned with the plight of so many of our fellow Texans in the wake of the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey,” the band says in a joint statement. “We are encouraged by the city’s and state’s recovery efforts from this tragic event and stand alongside our neighbors.”
The group adds, “Long ago, we recorded a song called ‘Heaven, Hell or Houston.’ We’re confident that, in the near future, the first word will describe the title’s third word and the middle will soon be overcome.”
ZZ Top formed in 1969 in Houston, which also is the birthplace of frontman Billy Gibbons.
