Alright, this weekend my band of the week goes to ZZ Top. Let's listen to some of their favorite tunes. First will be 'Bad To The Bone'. Next will be my all time favorite 'La Grange', this song also played in G3 live in concert 2005. Another powerful tune is 'Tush', this song really cheer me up. Lastly is 'Legs', this song used to be the theme song for Stacy Keibler who got a pair of sexy long legs in WWE.

About ZZ Top

ZZ Top is an American blues rock band formed in 1969 in Houston. The band members are Billy Gibbons (guitar, lead vocals), Dusty Hill (bass, lead vocals), and Frank Beard (drumes, percussions).

The band members still remain the same after more than 37 years, and the same manager/producer, Bill Ham. They reached the peak of their commercial success in 1970s and 1980s with scoring many hit songs during that era. They still remain together today and still touring and releasing albums.

ZZ Top

ZZ Top was inducted into the 'Rock and Roll Hall of Fame' on March 15, 2004. Gibbons is one of America's finest blues guitarist working in the arena rock idiom, while Hill and Beard provide the ultimate rhythm section support. Their song lyrics often feature sexual innuendo and humor.. by Cub Koda

ZZ Top

Gibbons and Hill are also famous for their custom guitars. They also always pictured wearing sunglasses, similar if not matching clothing, and their trademark chest-length beards. In 1984, the Gillette Company reportedly offered Gibbons and Hill US$1 million apiece to shave their beards for a television commercial, but they declined.

Simple American said...

Thats Texas Blues homie. They come from Houston in fact.

They have a song called Cheap Sunglasses which is why they weat r those.

They are so funny. They don't take them selves seriously and really have a good time.

I wanted to see them at the rodeo this year, but could not make it. I remember one year I was at the rodeo, actually the carnival that is a part of the rodeo. My kids are playing on some rides and I am waiting. There are some party tents close by. I hear some music and I'm thinking the band is playing some ZZ Top. I kept listening and then I realize that it WAS ZZ. My kids had a hard time getting me to move. haha

Just some trivia. Do you know what ZZ Top is? That is the name of some cigarette rolling papers that are used for whacky tobaccy.
