American rock guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer, and actress, Joan Jett, leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, has had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles. The classics include “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “Bad Reputation,” “Crimson And Clover,” and “I Hate Myself For Loving You.” Jett was one of only two women named to Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 greatest guitar players of all time. Joining her on the concert stage and back by popular demand in Southern Maryland is the legendary, classic rock trio ZZ Top.
Formed in Houston, Texas over 40 years ago, Billy Gibbons (guitar, lead vocals, harmonica), Dusty Hill (bass, vocals), and Frank Beard (drums, percussion) hold the distinction of being among the few rock bands still composed of its original recording members. ZZ Top was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and has scored a mirage of hit singles including “Legs,”“Sharp Dressed Man,” “Rough Boy,” and “Gimme All Your Lovin.” The band has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, scored eight Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, six number one mainstream rock hits, and three MTV Video Music Awards.
