Great Dusty Hill is dead, and his cause of death is reportedly related to a hip injury.
His bandmates wrote: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX.

Dusty was one of ZZ Top’s founding members, best known for his famous beard, serving as their lead bass player and secondary lead vocalist since 1969.

Reactions to Dusty Hill’s Death
Following the tragic news, several fans, friends, and supporters reacted and stated their condolences on social media websites.
An online user tweeted: “Rest in peace, Dusty Hill. Saw ZZ Top in Liverpool in 2003 – absolutely awesome band! End of an era.” Another wrote: “Incredibly happy I was able to see ZZ Top live at least once before Dusty Hill passed.”
One of his fans also wrote on Twitter: “When I first saw ZZ Top play in the early 70’s I frankly didn’t know who they were. It was before the Tres Hombres album that really broke them came out, and I hadn’t heard anything by them. Needless to say, I became a lifelong fan after that evening. RIP Dusty Hill.”
Another noted that “One of the best concerts I have been to was ZZ Top. We were probably 10 rows off center stage and I have never felt bass like that before or after. My body was sore for like a week from the bass alone. RIP to man responsible for that bass, Joseph “Dusty” Hill.”
