ZZ Top Set to Receive 'Living Legends' Award

ZZ Top Set to Receive 'Living Legends' Award -

As they prepare to release their new album, the Rick Rubin produced 'La Futura,' Southern Rock icons ZZ Top are to be honoured at the Classic Rock Magazine's Roll of Honour awards ceremony.

It means the Texan trio will now follow Iggy Pop, Jimmy Page, Alice Cooper, Lemmy, Jeff Beck and Ozzy Osbourne as winners of the Living Legends award.

"ZZ Top band members are excitedly gearing up to attend the 2012 Classic Rock Awards," guitarist Bily Gibbons said,

"A celebration held in a timely manner following the long awaited release of the new ZZ disc, 'La Futura.'  Good times for sure…! We've stuck it out long enough to where this once unpredictable style, which has no basis other than oddness, brought us back into vogue."

However, the ZZ Top are also preparing to slug out with Black Sabbath, Guns N' Roses, Joe Bonamassa, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Rush for the Band of the Year prize.

The winners will be announced at London's Roundhouse on November 13.
