On August 13th the new career spanning documentary, ZZ Top: That Little Ol' Band From Texas will make its worldwide premiere in Los Angeles at the Cinerama Dome followed by event screenings nationwide timed to the band's 50th anniversary tour. Guitarist Billy F. Gibbons said of the doc, "I think even our most steadfast fans will find themselves surprised by what they learn about those men behind the beards and cheap sunglasses. There we are, up there on the silver screen and it's something we're delighted to share with fans of all stripes." On August 23rd, the film will be premiering at Cineplex Cinemas across Canada.

According to the press release for the film, "Buoyed by candid band interviews, never-before-seen archive, animation, celebrity fan testimonials from Billy Bob Thornton and Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and an intimate performance at the oldest dance hall in Texas, historic Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, that was shot exclusively for the film, That Little Ol' Band From Texas runs the gamut, from the absurd to the poignant, from squalid bars to MTV heroics, all in celebration of this notoriously private but larger-than-life power trio. In the end, the film unravels the extraordinary tale of a band whose image we know, but whose story we don't."

When we last caught up with bassist Dusty Hill, he explained that he and his ZZ Top bandmates -- Billy Gibbons, and Frank Beard -- don't face the same type of problems on the road that other veteran acts do, because they've managed to stay close throughout the years: "(We) have a lot in common. I mean, I think it has something to do with being a three-piece group -- y'know, you got two other guys to deal with, that's it -- and what they're going through, you're going through."
