Why Haven't I seen any of you degenerates start a ZZ Top Thread?

Recommended Posts

Oh hell yes.

 

Had the pleasure of meeting the Reverend once. He told us a story about Roger Waters inviting him to England to try to talk him into joining Pink Floyd. Wtf?

My half-brother managed and played part time keys with The Moving Sidewalks back in the 60s and was involved on some level with ZZ's First Album. 

My half-brother and Billy.

Also, I sat next to Dusty chatting it up in Lizards Pub in Houston for about 10 minutes before I figured out who he was and bought him a drink.

Any one have any intel on this?  Searched a bunch and can't find any way to watch it.  Looks like it was in some art houses in September then poof.

I shook his hand in Austin in the lobby of the W several years ago. It was one of the most memorable moments of my life.

Indeed. He spent about 30 minutes with us since we were with a guy he knew. The whole time I was thinking this is great but could we just jam for a minute?

Billy cruised by in front of my house years back on his motorcycle. It was all sorts of awesome.

The definition of legendary. I love Dusty, he doesn’t get enough credit from the casual fans. Great singer and monster bass player.

Have seen them a couple of times in the last 10 years...big tight sound, cruise control act. They could do their schtick in their sleep. Did enjoy...

I was a big fan when I first discovered them doing blues inspired stuff. 
When new sound took over I was a little worried. But damn if they didn’t make that a lot of fun.

I will always enjoy them. My dad's favorite  band. When he was diagnosed with terminal cancer, he bought tickets to a ZZ Top show at the Erwin Center for the family, rented a limo, and after the show we went to Deep Eddy and all got hammered on pitchers of PBR.

I heard that on the X.

Someone help me out here. I used to work with a guy in the mid-80’s who was a drummer. People around the office claimed he used to drum with the ZZ Top crew when they were younger and missed out on an opportunity to become part of the band. His name was Kerry. I can find no record of this whatsoever but I’ve always wondered if it was bs.

Dude?  
 

you never heard the song “Heard it on the X”

Their homage to pirate Mexican radio that blasted all kinds of music on the border. They listened and got lots of their chops there. I has a sad you don’t know this.

Sorry, been a long day and have been drinking hard since I got home. Got it. 

You are forgiven this time. 
 

DO NOT let ZZ Top trivia get lost on your drinking habits. 
 

My drinking has never got in the way of Top trivia. At least that I remember.
