I spent 27 years as the leader/founder/bass player/singer of TRES HOMBRES…a ZZTOP Tribute from Toronto..I live in Victoria…over my career I had many opportunities to see ZZ and meet but it was always disrupted by awkward events….I was hoping to be able to meet them…perhaps you could arrange this?…I have no problem re: purchasing tickets…am not looking for a freebee…but to have this chance after 3 decades of performing all over the world as a TRIBUTE to gthis great band…here’s a vid of US in 1989….
it would be a life-long dream to meet Billy and the Boyz…thank you!
hOW COULD I GET TO DO THIS\??
OK UNFORTUNATELY THIS ISN'T GOING TO BE A GOOD COMMENT!! A WHILE AGO BACK IN 2012 ON FATHERS DAY I ATTENDED THE TAMPA BAY RAYS BASEBALL GAME AND AFTER THE GAME WAS A CONCERT WITH GRETCHEN WILSON, ANOTHER BAND AND ZZ TOP. NOW DURING THE FIRST 2 BANDS THE CONCERT WAS PUT ON THE BIG SCREEN SO WE IN THE STANDS COULD SEE THE PERFORMERS PERFORM. THE STAGE WAS OUT IN THE CENTER FIELD AND ONLY CERTAIN PEOPLE WITH PASSES COULD GO OUT TO THE STAGE AREA SO THE PEOPLE IN THE STANDS COULDN'T REALLY SEE THE BANDS THAT WELL. THEY WOULD PUT THE OTHER BANDS ON THE BIG SCREEN SO WE COULD SEE THEM UP CLOSE. NOT ZZ TOP!!!! THEY PUT ON SOME STUPID VIDEO AND NOT THE BAND SO WE COULDN'T REALLY SEE THEM PERFORMING. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT???? WHAT WERE AFRAID OF US SEEING YOUR UP CLOSE? WERE YOU LIP SYNCING ??? WTF??? I DIDN'T APPRECIATE THAT AT ALL AND WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! I WAS REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU GUYS BUT WHEN YOU DID THAT ON THE BIG SCREEN, I MIGHT OF WELL STAYED HOME AND LISTENED TO MY CD'S.. BECAUSE THAT IS ABOUT WHAT IT WAS LIKE. TOO BAD BECAUSE YOU REALLY BUMMED ME OUT AND NOW I WON'T GO NOR WILL MY FRIENDS THAT SAW THAT SHOW GO TO ANYMORE OF YOUR CONCERTS... ALSO I HEARD FROM OTHER FRIENDS WHO SAW ZZ TOP AT ANOTHER ARENA AND THEY SAID THE SAME THING ABOUT THE BIG SCREENS PLAYING A VIDEO AND NOT SHOWING THE BAND.....THAT REALLY SUCKS ESPECIALLY IF YOU PAID A LOT OF MONEY TO SEE THE BAND. YOU REALLY HAVE TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU RUN CONCERTS OR JUST RETIRE!!!
I am so tired of being ripped off by web sites that buy up all the tickets to an event and reselling them for so much more than the original price ........And the artist doesn't get the extra money
Anyone want to hear some killer covers of some old ZZTOP tunes off of First album and Rio Grande Mud?? email me firstname.lastname@example.org
This is music by my best friend who I believe is Billy's long lost brother.

Here are my favorite albums :
Eliminator - Afterburner - Recycler (The trilogy in fact).
I know most of you won't agree, but these albums really made me discover ZZ TOP in the 80's.
Now that I've been practicing the electric guitar for 4 years, with a blues orientation, I appreciate more and more the first albums.
Antenna was also a good one.
man so sorry about it :( by mistake I put "Afterburner" instead of "Recycler" album, after send I realized it (right list below), thanks.
These are all my favorite ZZ albums
