You can lead the horse to water BUT too often blues'rock is overlooked to accomodate'pop'noise.

Thank you "shitface" for that well thought out comment about how much ZZ Top suck. Who cares about writing why the suck because according to you, all that matters is they "suck." And as an added bonus, we get an extra comment about how they should have better facial grooming skills.

ZZ Top, the greatest musical act to have touched all areas of talent, reached all groupings of listeners and have endured beyond the glitz and glam of the industry, long live ZZ Top.

Saw the Texas Trio at Bonnaroo. Played at midnight. Went thru all their hits. Vocals not quite as good (these guys are older than dirt), but guitar/drum action was right there.

Always loved this band's music and they've always had a great defining sound. I thought they would be good live but for some reason they didn't cut it with me at Bonnaroo. Maybe its because all my energy was used for Paul McCartney, but I almost was put to sleep. Too bad I missed out on La Grange....always an energetic guitar song!

THese guys really knew how to do it. They combined southern blues with hard rock. And then in the '80s they put synthesizers in. These guys were genius when it comes to writing their own music. They were massively innovative. Not sure about influence. But they deserved to go in

I gave these guys another chance almost 2 wks ago when they came to St. Louis. They did way better than they did at Bonnaroo a year ago. I think they were probably uncomfortable being only one of hundreds of acts playing at a festival, who knows. But they were very comfortable to have all of their true fans right in front of them and they played all the hits, the way the people wanted to hear and see them!

It is always ABBA to ZZTOP when looking at A-Z lists of bands/artists.It will always be like this in the years to come.That encure ZZTOP's place in rock history - even if you don't like them.The main thing is that they are still rocking live whereby tons of other so-called "rock bands" are long forgotten.Give them the respect they deserve.Long live ZZTOP.
