After an astounding 46 years as one of America’s premier rock bands, ZZ Top are still able to draw big crowds and thrill with their no nonsense bluesy rock. It’s the simplicity of the concept that has maintained the bands’ lasting charm. As their motto goes: “Same three guys, same three chords.” And it still works after all these years. Out on the road continuing to play behind the Live At Montreux DVD (Eagle Rock Records), ZZ Top are kicking as much ass as they ever have. At a recent tour stop at Arizona’s Talking Stick Resort, and playing a set of greatest hits, deep cuts, and covers (Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters), the band was in top form.
