Very sad news. :(

The first concert I ever went to was in 1985... ZZ Top. The Headpins opened. I recall so much of it that it's hard to believe that was 36 years ago!

Thanks for the tunes and memories Dusty. Rock in Peace.

My favorite grade 9 English teacher was a mad fan of ZZ top. Had all their albums but he said they went to shit after Eliminator and going mainstream. Bit of a snob I guess but as a young kid I didn't know the difference. In any event I was turned on to them from there.

RIP Dusty

If anyone wants a great documentary on their history, "That Little Ol Band From Texas" is on Netflix. It's a really good look at their entire history.

A statement from his London publicist, Bernard Doherty, to the PA news agency said: “It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Charlie Watts.

“He passed away peacefully in a London hospital earlier today surrounded by his family. Charlie was a cherished husband, father and grandfather and also, as a member of the Rolling Stones, one of the greatest drummers of his generation.”

He’s keeping perfect time in the great gig in the sky now. RIP.

It’s sad, but he lived a full life of 91 years. A great actor and human being. He will be missed but never forgotten.

The Wire star Michael K Williams found dead

American actor Michael K Williams, best known for starring in HBO drama series The Wire, has been found dead in his New York apartment. He was 54.

US media quote law enforcement sources as saying he died from a suspected drug overdose. This has not been officially confirmed.

Williams - who was nominated for three Emmy Awards - had openly discussed his struggles with drugs over the years.

In The Wire, he played Omar Little, a gay, streetwise robber of drug gangs.

He was also known for playing Albert "Chalky" White, a powerful gangster, in the Prohibition period TV series Boardwalk Empire.

New York Police Department spokesman John Grimpel said police went to Williams's Brooklyn apartment after receiving an emergency call at 14:00 local time on Monday (18:00 GMT).

Fellow actors and filmmakers have been paying tribute on social media.

"The depth of my love for this brother, can only be matched by the depth of my pain learning of his loss," The Wire co-star Wendell Pierce tweeted.

"A immensely talented man with the ability to give voice to the human condition portraying the lives of those whose humanity is seldom elevated until he sings their truth," Pierce added.

RIP Omar.
