ZZ Top joined an elite roster of musicians at Eric Clapton’s 2010 Crossroads Festival, held in Chicago on June 26.
According to Premier Guitar, the blues rock luminaries delivered the “hardest rocking set of the day.”
With his Gretsch “Billy-Bo” Jupiter Thunderbird in hand, Billy Gibbons and his sidekicks Dusty Hill and Frank Beard rocked through a set that was highlighted by a fuzz-driven cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady” and their own classic “La Grange.”
ZZ Top is scheduled to perform at this year’s Del Mar Beer Fest in Del Mar, Calif. on Sept. 4, followed by a string of shows with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
