8/10

Remarkably, this is one of very few books about ZZ Top considering their worldwide fame, but it couldn’t have come at a better time as it’s release coincides with the Texas trio’s 45th Anniversary in 2014. Penned by acclaimed rock writer Neil Daniels, fans will enjoy this detailed history of the band from their pre ZZ Top days right through to the present. This ultimate guide to ZZ includes the analysis of some of the bands albums, concerts and music videos as well as a detailed catalogue of the bands awards, TV and film appearances. It’s topped off with a discography, rare photos and a trivia section for the most die hard of fans. Also referring back to blues players, country musicians and rock acts who initially inspired the band, as well as a glance forward to the bands peers and fellow musicians, Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers gives a well rounded view of the ZZ Top legacy.
