KISS frontman Paul Stanley paid his respects to ZZ Top bass guitarist Dusty Hill who unfortunately passed away by sharing a new post on his official Twitter account.
Dusty Hill was the second lead vocalist for ZZ Top besides being the band’s bass guitarist, and he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame back in 2004. However, he had been struggling with health issues.
Due to some problems related to his hips, Dusty couldn’t play on the stage with ZZ Top this month after fifty-one years. Sadly, Dusty passed away yesterday at the age of 72 and left his loved ones along with his great legacy behind.
Following his death, KISS’s Paul Stanley wanted to share his feelings about the bassist and with a tweet, he praised Hill’s personality by saying that he was such a unique person that he will always live in our hearts as ZZ Top’s bassist forever.
While Paul said that Dusty was always a gentleman from the beginning of Stanley’s career when KISS was opening for them until his passing, he also thanked the iconic musician for everything he has done for the music industry.
Paul Stanley on Dusty Hill’s passing:
“Wow! Dusty Hill. What an icon. ZZ Top’s bassist forever. So unique. Always a gentleman from the days of us opening for them through the recent days of them opening for us. I don’t know what to say but ‘Thank you’ and ‘Rest however you damn well choose!'”
