Produced by the Emmy award-winning Banger Films, ZZ TOP: THAT LITTLE OL' BAND FROM TEXAS tells the story of how Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard became one of the biggest, most beloved bands on the planet, all while maintaining a surrealist mystique that continues to intrigue fans and entice onlookers 50 years after the band's inception. Buoyed by candid band interviews, never-before-seen archive, animation, celebrity fan testimonials (Billy Bob Thornton, Joshua Homme and more), and an intimate performance at the legendary Gruene Hall shot exclusively for this documentary, "That Little Ol' Band" runs the gamut, from the absurd to the poignant, from squalid Texas bars to MTV heroics, all in celebration of this notoriously private, but larger than life, power trio. In the end, ZZ TOP: THAT LITTLE OL' BAND FROM TEXAS unravels the extraordinary tale of a band whose image we know, but whose story we don't.
When Gibbons's Houston band was booked to open for The Jimi Hendrix Experience, the only way they could fill their assigned 40-minute time slot was to include the two Hendrix songs they knew, "Foxy Lady" and "Purple Haze." As he revved into the opening chords of the latter, Gibbons spied Hendrix staring at him from the wings. When he came off, Gibbons says, Hendrix told him: "I like you. You got a lotta nerve."

"ZZ Top: That Little Ol' Band from Texas": Loud & Proud in The Lone Star State
I grew up in Texas and was well aware of the rock band ZZ Top from a young age. While not exactly a gigantic fan of Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard, I connected with the full force approach and aggressive style of several of the power trio's rousing songs. Nearly all of these tunes embrace the distinctly sovereign sensibility of The Lone Star State. If not already familiar, expect to better understand what is meant by "A Texas State of Mind" after experiencing "ZZ Top: That Little Ol' Band from Texas".
As the boys in the band will tell you, y'all are welcome to share a Longneck with us anytime y'all want 'round here, pardner.
