About the trio, ZZ Top is one of the most representative bands of Blues rock in the world.
Blues rock is a genre in which the musical elements of the blues are fused with those of the classic rock and roll, where the use of patterns of twelve bars is chosen and a special emphasis is placed on the electric guitar with more powerful riffs than The traditional blues. This genre gained popularity in the sixties with exponents such as The Jimi Hendrix Experienceo Cream, Johnny Winter, Paul Butterfield, The Jeff Beck Group. So also the new Yardbirds group that would change its name by Led Zeppelin.
Even Yer Blues from The Beatles is a clear example of a Rock Blues performance.

In its beginnings, blues rock had southern sounds and a combination of hard rock with ZZ Top songs topping the list as one of the greatest exponents; And with great musical creations of acclaimed bands like Aerosmith and James Gang among others.
In the nineties, the genre was again strong with Slash, John Mayer, The White Stripes and The Black Keys to name a few.

The main instruments for the execution of blues rock are the electric guitar, bass and drums; The voice is a central element that ends up giving life to the composition, although many of the songs of the genre prove that the voice is not the most important, most of it gives more importance to the guitar. ZZ Top demonstrates that you only need a trio that dominates the essential instruments and that touches with much feeling.
In some other bands, instruments such as the electronic keyboard or the piano are often used as an accompaniment.
Blues rock will remain alive as bands like ZZ Top stay together and do things as well as they have been doing so far.
