Let me get this straight - you got the shaft from ZZ TOP AND YOU DIDNT GET SECOND ROW LIKE ADVERTISED??? I would take GROUND CONTROL TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT.
SAW THE GUITAR ON THE CRUISE. FINE PIECE OF ART. TOOOOOO SAD THEY WOULD NOT SIGN IT SINCE IT WAS DESIGNED WITH THEM IN MIND. I FIGURE IT WOULD HAVE TAKEN ALL OF 30 SECONDS FOR ALL TO SIGN. I GUESS IT'S ALL ABOUT THE $$$$$$$$$$ & NOT ABOUT THE LOYAL FANS. THEY WILL GET NO MORE OF MINE $$$$$$$$$$. SEE YOU ON RLC II.
SAW THEM ON ROCK LEGENDS CRUISE. I HAVE ALWAYS PUT ZZ AT THE TOP OF MY LIST. NEVER MISSED A CONCERT WHEN THEY WERE IN TOWN. STILL HAVE ALL ZZ ON 8 TRACK. AS A FAN OF ZZ I ALONG WITH THE MAJORITY OF CRUISERS ( OUR AGE GROUP PUT THEM WHERE THEY ARE TODAY) WERE UPSET THAT THEY DID NOT MAKE THEMSELVES AVAILABLE TO TAKE PICTURES OR SIGN AUTOGRAPHS LIKE THE MTB & MOLLY HATCHET DID + MANY OTHER GROUPS ON THE CRUISE. A FEW PEOPLE RAN INTO THEM AND THEY STILL REFUSED . I GUESS THEY FORGOT WHERE THEY CAME FROM "THE BOTTOM" LIKE ALL OTHER ROCK STARS. IN THE BEGINNING FOLKS IN BEAUMONT,NEW ORLEANS, AND THE GULF COAST REALLY LOVED THEIR BLUSEY AND KICK ASS ROCKING COMBO AND SUPPORTED THEM.REMEMBER " THE WAREHOUSE IN N.O. WHICH WAS ONE VENUE THEY PLAYED MANY TIMES. WE BUILT THE FOUNDATION ( FAN BASE) TO SUPPORT THEM, BUT WE ARE NOW FORGOTTEN. I HEAR THEY HAVE A NEW CD COMING OUT. MAYBE THEY SHOULD DO A STEVE MILLER COVER OF TAKE THE MONEY & RUN!!!!! SORRY , JUST VERY DISGUSTED WITH THE TRES HOMBRES. DON'T KNOW IF I COULD BRING MYSELF TO SEE THEM AGAIN AFTER THE CRUISE AND READING THESE BLOGS
I feel for you brother! I spent three months building a custom guitar ( http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2145313486610&set=a.2144655790168.89046.1659453186&type=3&theater ) to honor the boys and the Rock Legends Cruise. I was, needless to say, disappointed when their manager just flat out shut me down twice. As a player, I can appreciate the need to protect the tools of the craft, hands, health etc., but come on guys, it's just a minute or two of your time to acknowledge the decades of support that we have given.
I saw ZZ in Denver , with the same treatment. I still have NOT receiver my CD yet. The show was October 10 th'. Our hostess , Cory didnt even have a camera for the pictures....go figure . They could care less about our feelings , assuming we are HUMAN and have feelings !! I was told to suck it up by said hostess when i found out that i didnt have first 2 row seating. And my call from ground central , that she promised never came either....( no surrise ) they got there money. I got squat.....
