ZZ Top’s Dusty Hill Fractures Shoulder, Dates Rescheduled

ZZ Top

ZZ Top has been forced to cancel a string of tour dates after Dusty Hill injured his shoulder. The bearded bassist was preparing to take stage in Lubbock, Texas when he was tripped by an unlit step-up backstage. The band’s website explains that Hill has subsequently undergone treatment for a fractured shoulder.

“My physicians told me that this type of injury is usually associated with contact sports,” Hill wrote. “I’m not sure bass-playing qualifies as such but they’re doing their best to get me back in the game as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes we’ve received. We’re determined to enjoy a speedy recovery and see you soon!”

ZZ Top’s outings through May 7th will be rescheduled. We’re wishing a speedy recovery to Mr. Dusty Hill!
