ZZ Top stream Rough Boy from live hits album

ZZ Top

ZZ Top have streamed their version of Rough Boy, featuring Jeff Beck, from upcoming album Greatest Hits Live.

It’s set for launch on August 12 via Suretone Records, and follows 2012 studio title La Futura, 2014’s Live At Montreux 2013, and compilation The Very Baddest, also released in 2014.

Guitarist Billy Gibbons reports: “We spend the biggest stretch of every year out on the road, whippin’ wire, poundin’ skin and rockin’ it way up. This is the true document of live de la ZZ.

“In an abstract surrealist style, this collection is a definitive chronicle of the band hangin’ together for four-plus deluxe decades, getting down to do what we get to do.”

Greatest Hits Live is available for pre-order now. ZZ Top are currently touring Europe, including an appearance at the Glastonbury festival later this week, with North American dates to follow.
