    30 yr ZZ guitar tech will be steppin' in for Dusty Hill. Elwood Francis, just got a promotion. He'll be playing bass, lap slide, and harmonica for his long time employer ZZ Top. Dusty passed the torch before he left the band, and then unfortunately passed.

    A sad loss, but also an understudies dream.

    I've seen videos of him, and that looks like his hair. However, the beard looks a bit iffy.... He was clean shaven 1 year ago.

    Elwood is a really laid back guy from the interviews I have seen. I'm sure he is a good fit to finish the tour schedule, but no one can replace Dusty. He was a true original.

    ZZ Tech: the name of my ZZ Top cover band after retirement.

    I just saw some video of the most recent ZZ show. Looks like Elwood is picking up the mantle for Dusty permanently.

    Top is coming through my city in December. I'm definitely taking my boy to see them before they call it quits. Even though Dusty is gone, it will still be a show to remember.
