ZZ Top
ZZ Top
Genre: Rock/Pop

Famous for their powerful singing and slashing guitars, much in evidence on tracks like ‘La Grange’ and ‘Gimme All Your Lovin’, the legendary and extravagant blues rock trio ZZ Top are also known for their Texan cowboy look, complete with hats and inordinately long beards. Curiously, the drummer Frank Beard is the one band member who doesn’t sport a beard! The story goes that in 1984 Gillette offered Gibbons and Hill a million dollars to appear in an advert in which they would shave off their beards. They refused...

Starting with their first album (ZZ Top’s First Album) in 1970, the band offered up a style that was heavily steeped in the blues. ZZ Top entered the limelight at the Festival of Memphis – the very place where Elvis Presley gave his first concert in 1955! ZZ Top kicked off the 1980s with a more diverse album, El Loco (October 1981), which for the first time featured a synthesiser and sonic effects - ‘Party on the Patio’ and ‘Tube Snake Boogie’ did very well in the American charts. But their biggest success came in March 1983 with Eliminator, an album on which the group reinvented itself with a blend of blues and rock.

Un pote est allé les voir au festival de Caen en 2012, il parrait qu'ils ne peuvent plus se voir mais qu'ils font toujours aussi bien le job. Question : Gibbons il serait pas devenu chauve ? avec sa perruque à 2 balles il est ridicule. Mais ça ne m'empêchera pas d'aller les voir à Rouen le 19 juin.
