Why ZZ Top Chose Their Beard Look

Billy F Gibbons explains why ZZ Top chose to adopt their trademark beard look. “Our first official release for Warner Brothers contained a photograph on the little sleeve inside the 12in long playing album. Actually the only evidence of Frank beard with a beard is hiding in inside of that record. He quickly grabbed the razor and went to town, but for Dusty and I, what started out as a disguise turned into a trademark.”
