    I have not been a huge fan of ZZ Top, but have enjoyed several of their songs throughout the years. I have a majority of their vinyl LPs, but have yet to purchase a CD. I also attended their concert at Northern Quest Casino (NQ) and was looking forward to a night of past hits and maybe an opportunity to hear a few songs from their new CD. I really enjoyed the short performance, but like a majority of individuals I was disappointed by the very short concert. I had never seen them in a live performance, so I can cross that off of my "bucket list," because I will never waste money to see them again. This little band from Texas seems to have gotten to big for their britches and their ex-fan base are not pleased. They played one song off of their new CD and I was not impressed at all. Rumor is that they did not sign any autographs or pose with fans for photographs. It wasn't that long ago that they were filling arenas and now they are having trouble selling out at Casinos. Maybe this "Lil Ol' Band From Texas" is now "The Best Lil Whore House in Texas," because a lot of people from NQ concert felt like they got fu**ed.
    I left two posters at the box office hoping that they would autograph them for my two daughters (9& 16). I feel lucky that I got the posters back, because they did keep the two pens that I supplied them. There are still artists out there that appreciate their fans: B.B. King, Hall & Oates, Peter Frampton, Mary Wilson, Loggins & Messina, Leon Russell et al. These are the people that are true stars and remember where they came from and who got them where they are.
