Who doesn't love ZZ Top? Get ready Arkansas because that Little Ol' Band from Texas is coming to the Murphy Arts District in El Dorado and The Eagle has your chance to win tickets. 

It's great to see Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard finding their way back to the stage after the death of Dusty Hill last year. You know that Dusty would have wanted them to carry on with the band and that's just what they did with the addition of Elwood Francis.

ZZ Top with New Member Elwood Francis

Billy Gibbons recently said in an interview that the addition of Elwood has made it feel like a new band put some new life into the band. When Dusty Hill died they were in the middle of their 50th Anniversary Tour. They knew Dusty would want the show to go on so Gibbons guitar tech Elwood Frances stepped in to help. It's been such a great fit that Elwood is still playing with the band and is now an official member.


Gibbons said in an interview with loudersound.com

 “It’s quite a trip having Elwood step in to help keep the ball rolling. He’s adding a great bit of enthusiasm. When I see [drummer] Frank Beard smiling for the first time in thirty years, I know something good’s happening.”

Check Out the Best-Selling Album From the Year You Graduated High School

Do you remember the top album from the year you graduated high school? Stacker analyzed Billboard data to determine just that, looking at the best-selling album from every year going all the way back to 1956. Sales data is included only from 1992 onward when Nielsen's SoundScan began gathering computerized figures.

Going in chronological order from 1956 to 2020, we present the best-selling album from the year you graduated high school.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
