ZZ Top

ZZ Top is an American blues rock band, formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. Comprising of Billy Gibbons (lead vocals and guitar), Dusty Hill (vocals, bass, and keyboards), and Frank Beard (drums and percussion), ZZ Top was ranked number 44 on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.". The trio's original lineup has been intact for over 40 years; their longevity together of 41 years has placed them second only to the Four Tops, whose original band members remained intact from 1953 until the death of Lawrence Payton in 1997. ZZ Top retained the services of the same manager, Bill Ham, until September, 2006.

La Grange

La Grange is a song by the rock group ZZ Top from their album Tres Hombres, released in 1973. Considered to be almost a "one-chord blues", it is one of their most successful songs. It was released in 1973 and received extensive radio play, rising to #41 in the Billboard Pop Singles list in 1974. The song refers to a bordello on the outskirts of La Grange, Texas (later notoriously known as the "Chicken Ranch"). This brothel is also the subject of the Broadway play and film The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, the latter starring Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds.

In March 2005, Q magazine placed "La Grange" at number 92 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. The song is also ranked number 74 on Rolling Stone magazine's "100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time". The song was also included as a playable song in the video game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.
