When and how did you discover ZZ TOP ?
As far as I am concerned, I discovered ZZ TOP at the age of 14 ! A friend of mine lent me a tape (it was in 1984 !). The MTV period, you remember ! The album was "Afterburner" ! (Sleeping bags, rough boys ...). This is how all stated for me. The sound of ZZ TOP really drove me crazy ! The video clips with the car (Eliminator), the babes ! Everything was just great !
I know this period is not the best one for the real ZZ TOP fans (I mean the ones from the very beginning who prefer less "electronic fx" into the ZZ TOP music and much more "bluesy" sounds.
I grew up (LOL), and now I understand. Through the years, I bought and discovered the entire album collection. Now I do appreciate songs like "Jesus just left Chicago, Beer Drinkers..., Tube snake boogie, A fool for your stockings ...".
The last time I saw the boys in concert was 5 days ago in Paris (at the Olympia Music Hall). They were in great shape ! One of the best show I've ever seen !
What about you ????
