Music Video of the Day: Viva Las Vegas by ZZ Top (1992, directed by ????)


Yesterday, many of us woke up to this sad message from Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of ZZ Top:

“We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that “Blues Shuffle in C.”

You will be missed greatly, amigo.

Frank & Billy

Dusty Hill was 72 years old and died in his sleep in Houston, Texas.  Though it’s already been announced that ZZ Top will continue with longtime band associate Elwood Francis replacing Hill, it’s still hard not to feel that an era has come to a close.

Today’s music video of the day is ZZ Top’s cover of Viva Las Vegas.  Rest in Peace, Dusty Hill.
