Will ZZ Top Members Shave Their Beards?
Almost 30 years ago, Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill turned down a million dollars to shave their beards. Will they do it?
Gillette offered up the sum for Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill to shave their iconic beards in a commercial and they both said, “NO WAY!” so, fast forward 28 years and they asked the pair the question again.
The answer? Still no.
Apparently no amount of money is going to get them to shave. Billy says quote, “No dice. Even adjusted for inflation, this isn’t going to fly. The prospect of seeing oneself in the mirror clean shaven is too close to a Vincent Price film.”
I find it incredibly ironic that the only member of ZZ Top without facial hair is the drummer and his name is Frank Beard. I also love the fact that ZZ Top’s new single is called I Gotsta Get Paid.
