LAS VEGAS (AP) – A musical based on the music of ZZ Top is in the works.
It’s called “Sharp Dressed Man” and it’s described as “an outrageous, bawdy musical romp” about a Texas auto mechanic who steals car parts.
Guitarist Billy Gibbons says fans have often told them ZZ Top has provided the soundtrack to their lives, and the musical is “very much in line with that kind of enthusiastic thinking.”
The band members will be executive producers. The musical is expected to open in Las Vegas next year.
