ZZ Top in Bonn, Germany

Recommended Posts

Woo-Hoo :up:

Got some tickets to see The Top in Bonn on July 21st!!!

Many thanks to Stoney_Stu for organising tix, flights, hotel.

Should be a great weekend in Germany, hope Bonn is ready for an invasion of fat middle-aged air guitarists, with aff-the-belly tour t-shirts (not us of course, we're real guitarists and are quite slim).

ZZ Top may be MTV whores, who release over-produced sequenced albums these days, but they're still a fucking great band, with a cracking back catalogue.

Looking forward to it

saw them on the vh-1 rock honours recently and was disappointed.

sound was terrible. still it wasnt anything to do with them like as its standard for these shows when a band comes on to do a few songs they have a terrible sound!

'Cheap Sunglasses' is a stormer of a track. Ooww Yeahh. Especially that Funk section that bookends the leads.

Yep - we do "Tush", "Cheap Sunglasses", "Fool for Your Stockings" & "I Need You Tonight" (badly) - this'll be a training course for us!

The bass on Cheap Sunglasses is brilliant, as is the two-chord bridge just before the solo.

Sorry to be populist, but doesn't get much better than Sharp Dressed Man for me.

Mrs Bigsby is always asking me for Pearl Necklace.
