"Yeah," says Billy, guitarist extraordinaire, "we're the same guys, bashing out the same three chords." With the release of each of their albums, rock icon ZZ Top has explored new ground in terms of approach and the material they've recorded. The elements that keep ZZ Top fresh can be summed up in the three words of the band's internal mantra: Tone, Taste, and Tenacity. After 50 years, ZZ Top is still the same but always changing. They are real and they're surreal and they're ZZ Top.

One of the premier hard rock vocalists of all-time, Ann Wilson smashed boundaries with her band Heart, the 8-times platinum, 35 million-plus selling Rock and Roll Hall of Fame trailblazers who formed in 1973. During a decades-long career, Wilson has ridden the roller-coaster of fame, fortune and madness, learning both joyous and hard, hard lessons along the way.
