Quiz #21

Rumoured origin of which band name?


Answer in comments.

Answer: ZZ Top

One of the rumoured origins of the band name ZZ Top is that it has been named after two popular brands of rolling paper, Zig-Zag and ‘Top’.The current version of the story–as told by Billy Gibbons and recorded in his book Rock + Roll Gearhead–is derived from the name of blues guitar master B. B. King.They thus figured that “King” was also at the “top”, and so settled on ZZ Top.
