Coming on September 25th will be ZZ Top's double-vinyl reissue of 2010's Live In Texas collection. The album, which was taped in November 2007 in Grand Prairie, Texas, features 17 tracks, including “Sharp Dressed Man,” “Gimme All Your Lovin,'” and “La Grange,” among others.
Also on the set is ZZ Top's version of Jimi Hendrix's “Foxy Lady.” Additionally, “Heard It On The X” is included as a vinyl-exclusive track, an extra bonus to the original CD release.
When we last caught up with ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill, we asked him if back in 1969, he or either of his bandmates — Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard — could ever have conceived that they'd still be recording and on the road all these years later: “I don't think anybody knew. We hoped to do some records and do some touring. We were asked one time, I think we were together 10 years or, something like that, y'know, how that felt. I remember thinking, 'Gee, has it been 10 years? That's a long time!'”
Back in 2004, Keith Richards did the honor of inducting ZZ Top into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — and couldn't help taking a poke at their one-of-a-kind appearance: “When I first saw 'em, I thought, 'I hope these guys are not on the run, because that disguise is not gonna work, man!' Y'know what I mean? (laughter) 'You're busted!'”
