The three members of ZZ Top -- "That Lil' Ole Band from Texas" -- frequently use their on-stage costumes to pay tribute to the culture and region that inspires much of their music.

Whether they're dressed up in fantastically detailed and embroidered western-themed suits, covered in grease-stained mechanic suits (as seen on the cover of their 1981 album 'El Loco,' a move that also demonstrates their love of automobiles), or decked out in traditional Mexican sarapes as in this photo, the band's roots, passions and heritage are always clearly visible.
