btw I was driving around the Hammersmith Apollo last week and ZZ Top were playing there. 95% of the audience were male with mullets and slightly germanic looking.


they played my town a while back, I didn't go but a buddy did and he was claiming that it wasn't even the same guys (from their heyday) behind the beards


Were the original ZZ Top for real?

The song "Antisocial" was released in 1980. Later after the music band Trust had split, the lead guitarist "Nono" Norbert Krief was a studio guitarist and toured with Johnny Hallyday from 1986 to 1994. The rythm guitar part of "Anitisocial" is really fun to play. Try it!
For the record, I had a drink with Nono and other guitar fans in Paris in 1997 at a Jennifer Batten's show case (the blond lead guitarist of Michael Jackson in the late 90's, great specialist of the two-hand tapping technique). It was great fun to talk with Nono as he told us many rock-n-roll stories. Anyway, someone who tours with Johnny Hallyday can't be that bad


Trust - Antisocial

Metal = Music of the Spheres. Knowledge of the Metals back in fashion?
