Doogie Howser And ZZ Top

Classic Rock Revisited spoke with ZZ Top star Billy Gibbons about several songs on their new album, La Futura, as well as why long beards have never taken off as a fashion statement, the time ZZ Time played and recorded after a hurricane and who would play the band in a movie written about them. Here is that last part of the exchange:

Classic Rock Revisited: when they make the ZZ Top movie… A) What will it be rated? B) Who will play each member of the band and C) Will the soundtrack be better than the actual movie?

Billy Gibbons: It will be rated "ZZ," of course or, maybe "ZZ 13." Frank will be played by Neil Patrick Harris, Dusty will be played by Dustin Hoffman (he's already got the name part down) and yours truly, the Reverend Willy G, will be played by either George Clooney or Brad Pitt. I'm sort of kidding about that last one. Would you believe Denzel Washington? No, huh? The album won't be as good as the movie because I don't think "Doogie Howser" is a particularly great drummer, but I could be wrong. more on this story
