Classic Rock magazine's Roll of Honor, in the midst of its eighth annual roll call, has announced ZZ Top as the first of its honorees.
"ZZ Top band members are excitedly gearing up to attend the 2012 Classic Rock Awards," guitarist Billy Gibbons said.
"A celebration held in a timely manner following the long awaited release of the new ZZ disc, La Futura. Good times for sure! We've stuck it out long enough to where this once unpredictable style, which has no basis other than oddness, brought us back into vogue."
Previous honorees include Iggy Pop, Jimmy Page, Alice Cooper, Lemmy, Jeff Beck and Ozzy Osbourne.
The eighth annual Orange Amplification Presents The Classic Rock Roll Of Honour in association with currencies.co.uk will take place at London's Roundhouse on Tuesday, November 13.
