ZZ Top Aren't Ready For A Close Shave

Billy Gibbons says the band wouldn't shave their beards for $2m

Bravewords reports that in a new interview Gibbons was asked about that infamous mid-1980s $1m offer from Gillette which would have seen ZZ Top shave off their beards for an advert.


They turned down the money at the time and nothing has changed over the past 30 years.

"No dice,” said Gibbons. "Even adjusted for inflation, this isn't going to fly. The prospect of seeing oneself in the mirror clean-shaven is too close to a Vincent Price film... a prospect not to be contemplated, no matter the compensation.”
