Beards rule. Beards are cool. ZZ Top do both those things, too. The band is thinning the herd of songs they've written and recorded for their new album, deciding which tunes will appear on the platter. The ZZ dudes recorded with another bearded maestro, producer Rick Rubin.
"It's down to seeds and stems, just picking through the good stuff," frontman Billy Gibbons told Billboard.com. "As a couple of friends of ours said, 'You really don't have to get that much better; your big job is really holding it down and not making too many drastic changes,' which I kinda like."
Fans catching the band on tour this summer can expect to hear the new jam "25 Lighters," which also will be in a commercial for Jeremiah Weed whiskey.
What is your favorite ZZ Top song? Do you dig their beards?
