Billboard:

ZZ Top’s longtime bassist Dusty Hill has died, the band announced in a statement shared with Billboard on Wednesday (July 28). He was 72.

“We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston,” the group shared. “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 greatly missed, amigo,” bandmates Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard concluded in their statement.

Damn. These last two years have been goddamned rough for music fans…
