Charleen McCrory Biography – Charleen McCrory Wiki
Charleen “Chuck” McCrory is Dusty Hill’s wife and an actress, known for Alien Vows (1996). Dusty Hill was an American musician, singer, and songwriter, best known as the bassist of the American rock group ZZ Top. ZZ Top was formed in 1969 in Houston, with bassist-singer-songwriter Hill playing alongside guitarist Gibbons and drummer Beard. ZZ Top has released 15 studio albums during its career — including half live/half-studio album Fandango! — selling more than 25 million records in the U.S. alone, per the RIAA. Seven of their LPs, including two hits compilations, are platinum or multiplatinum, with four others going gold. The group was featured in the 2019 documentary ZZ Top: That Little Ol’ Band from Texas, which scored a Grammy nom for Best Music Film.
The band’s discography includes a massive reissue of its early studio albums that was released as The ZZ Top Six Pack, a three-CD set that streeted in 1987. Covering the debut disc through 1981’s El Loco — but sans 1979’s Degüello — it featured an unfortunate remaster of “La Grange” that ’80s-up a signature drum fill, among other tweaks.
The group later was featured as an Old West-style band in Robert Zemeckis 1990 film Back to the Future III, which became that year’s sixth-highest-grossing movie. ZZ Top earned three career Grammy nominations, for the documentary and two for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for Eliminator (1983) and Afterburner (1986). The trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. In introducing the band to the Hall, Rolling Stones lead guitarist Keith Richards said: “These cats are steeped in the blues, so am I. These cats know their blues and they know how to dress it up. When I first saw them, I thought, ‘I hope these guys are not on the run, because that disguise is not going to work.'”
Joseph “Dusty” Hill was born on May 19, 1949, in Dallas and played in various local bands before teaming with Beard in the Dallas-based group American Blues. They eventually recruited guitarist Gibbons from the Dallas psychedelic-rock outfit Moving Sidewalks — which had opened for Jimi Hendrix a year earlier — and ZZ Top was on its way.
On July 28, 2021, ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill died in his sleep at his home in Houston, Texas, at the age of 72. His death was announced by his ZZ Top Guitarist Billy Gibbons and drummer Frank Beard. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard issued the following statement: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’ You will be missed greatly, amigo.”
