To begin with, Dusty grew up and attended high school in eastern Dallas. Elvis Presley and Rocky Hill, who played blues guitar, were early influences, and when the latter established his first band, Dusty Hill played bass. Rocky Hill, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard then formed The Dead Beats, The Warlocks, and American Blues, which included Rocky Hill, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard. In terms of the latter, the band’s trademark at the time was blue dyed hair, and the band’s music was a blend of psychedelic and blues rock. The band’s first release was a rendition of Tim Hardin’s “If I Had a Hammer.” As the band moved from Dallas to Houston, several albums, including “Is Here” (1967) and “Do Their Thing” (1968), were re-released. There, the band separated owing to differing visions; Dusty Hill preferred more rock, whereas his brother preferred more Blues elements, thus he quit the band and went solo.
Hill formed ZZ Top with Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard, a former bandmate, in late 1969; their musical styles were Blue Rock, Texas blues, and Southern rock. ZZ Top released five albums in six years: “ZZ Top’s First Album” (1971), “Rio Grande Mud” (1972), “Tres Hombres” (1973), “Fandango!” (1975), and “Tejas” (1976), and by 1976, they were one of the best-selling rock bands of the time, contributing significantly to Dusty Hill’s net worth. However, the band went on hiatus until 1979.
The band’s subsequent albums were more modern, including electronic sounds with their normal style. Hill and Gibbons grew their long beards until the release of their worldwide successful album “Eliminator” (1983), which became the band’s trademark. The band published “Antenna” (1994) in 1994 and signed a better-paying contract with RCA Records. Five years later, they released the live album “Live from Texas” (2008), which was a huge hit, earning them multi-platinum certification in the United States, Canada, and Europe. They released their studio album “La Futura” in 2012. “An Officer and a Gentleman,” “The Winner – American Flyers,” “Knight Rider,” “The Stand,” “The Sopranos,” and “Ghost Rider” are among the films in which the band has contributed to the soundtrack. Dusty Hill’s net worth has improved as a result of all of the above engagements.
Hill and his ZZ Top bandmates were elected into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. Finally, when it comes to Dusty Hill’s personal life, he has been married to Charlene McCrory since 2002 and has a daughter from a prior relationship.
