  1. Summer Show, 2013

    Hey ya’ll. Today, I received confirmation for tickets to ZZ Top and Kid Rock at Tinely Park, IL on August 30, 2013. It was a little confusing because ZZ Top was shown as performing at the Harley Davidson 110 Year Anniversery Reunion at the Summerfest Grounds in Milwaukee, WI on the same date. Kid Rock is shown on a 8-31-13 date at the HD Reunion. Go figure. I contacted the ZZTIFC and got...

    Yo All: Just saw the news. ZZ Top at the Harley Davidson110th Anniversary in Milwaukee, WI Summerfest grounds on August 30, 2013. This gig is not on the ZZ Top website yet. We have attended this gig a few years ago and it is great. Hope to see my Chicagoland homies at the gig. Light and Love. ZZombie. BTW: What's up with all the obscure blogs cluttering up my happy ZZ Top blog site? Curious.

    Hey Ya'll, Happy Birthday to our Reverend Billy G. 63 and still laying down the greasy low down blues. God bless you Billy! Many more and all the best to you and yours during now, this Holiday season and forever! Your fan, ZZombie.

  4. Favorite LaFutura Track

    Sun, Sep 16, 2012 at 9:29 AM 0 Comments

    As usual I bought the latest ZZ Top CD, La Futura, on the day it was released. It goes in the CD player and it is all I listen to for months. I have yet to embrace and practice downloading music. I did get the Texicali release from I Tunes, but I am still old school and get the CD. So far, I gotta say, track 4, "Over You" is my favorite track. I like the how the story is told, the melody, the...

  5. LaFutura Cover Art

    Hey ya'll... check it out. I opened an image of the LaFutura cover art on the computer and it took a while before the silhouettes of da boys showed up. All I could see was the yellow / gold textured back ground. At the bottom an image appeared of a figure / head and shoulders. It looked like a somewhat obscured traditional image of Jesus. I kid you not. I have tried to re-create this but was...

  6. La Futura

    Hey Ya'all: I saw the news release about the release of the next ZZ Top alblum 'La Futura' on 9-11-12. The article included an image of the cover art. I think that this image will make for a great ZZ Top T-shirt. Just wondering... when will a "La Futura' T-shirt be available from the Merch sqad at our favorite bands outfit? Looking forward to the new release. I have purchased all the 'modern...

  7. Grayslake, IL, 7-1-12 Hey ‘yall, it is your ZZ Top fan and concert goer ZZombie from Grayslake, IL. My girlfriend and I attended the ZZ Top concert at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI last night (6-30-12). It was a great show and here is the report: The opening act was Christian Connor and Southern Gothic. They are a very good band from Atlanta, Georgia. They had a female Russian fiddler that...

  8. Some Comments

    Some comments: 1. We are caretakers of guitars and other musical instruments. Fine instruments are meant for what they are made for... to make music. Who started signing instruments and why do people feel a need to have guitars signed? This practice seems strange to me. I have plenty of BFG autographs. None are on guitars. 2. I was lucky to become a Lifetime member of the ZZ Top...
