Old and New

Here is a fantastic image recently posted on Facebook. Photo credit goes to T. Dukes.

"And the Wheel Rolls On" for ZZ per Mr. Plant's prophetic words. Coming to a place near you, the ZZ Tops are again hitting the road hard. If the past few years have been an indication of what lies ahead than a continually updated set list is indeed something to look forward to.

I only managed to catch ZZ one time last year, a show near Richmond in May. I failed to blog at the time that I got to speak to Elwood for about 10 minutes or so prior to show time. When I commented how great the current set list was, he replied "its all Frank. He said they had to play some different numbers". So thanks goes to Rube and lets hope he's still voicing his opinion.

Hopefully I'll be able to catch them 2 or 3 times this year, we'll see what the clock allows...


  1. Great post! Glad to see the blog activity.

    They continue to shorten the setlist at the tour wears on, so let's just hope they don't drop any new numbers by the time we get to see them...

  2. It's the same set as last year. Nothing new... but what do you want after 45 years. We're jsut glad they're still around.
