ZZ Top & Gregg Allman
ZZ TOP a/k/a “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact and in 2004 the Texas trio was be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Of course, there are only three of them – Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Frank Beard -- but it’s still a remarkable achievement that they’re still very much together after more than 40 years of rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio. “Yeah,” says Billy, guitarist extraordinaire, “we’re the same three guys, bashing out the same three chords.” With the release of each of their albums the band has explored new ground in terms of both their sonic approach and the material they’ve recorded.

Gregory LeNoir "Gregg" Allman is an American rock and blues singer-songwriter, keyboardist, guitarist and a founding member, with his brother Duane, of The Allman Brothers Band.

"A Time for Change" Exhibit

An exhibition about that struggle, "A Time for Change," is open now through Sept. 28 at the Noyes Arts Garage in Atlantic City, N.J.

The exhibition is brought to the African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey in the Arts Garage, at 2200 Fairmount Ave., by Stockton University and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.
