Dusty must have known that his time was limited as he'd already specified that ZZ's long time guitar tech should replace him upon his death.

So interesting about Dusty's bandmate, Billy Gibbons:
Gibbons' father was an orchestra conductor, and concert pianist. When Billy Gibbons was five years old, his mother took him and his sister to see Elvis Presley. At age seven, Gibbons's father took him to a BB King recording session. A percussionist at first, Gibbons was sent by his father to NYC to study with Tito Puente.
