Born on May 19, 1949 in Dallas, Texas, Hill grew up playing cello in high school before transitioning to bass. He started his career playing alongside his guitarist brother Rocky and future ZZ Top bandmate Frank Beard in a series of local bands such as the Warlocks, the Cellar Dwellers and American Blues. It was during this time he met future ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons, who was touring the same Texas circuits with his band the Moving Sidewalks.
After the brothers parted company in 1968 over musical differences, Hill and Beard moved to Houston, where they eventually united with Gibbons, who formed ZZ Top in 1969. The band’s original bassist introduced Gibbons to Beard, and Hill would join the pair for a gig in Beaumont, Texas, in February, 1970. The line-up remained the same for more than five decades. In 2020, they celebrated their 50th anniversary at a San Antonio concert.
