    Soooo....this happened Sunday...

    So yesterday I went to see ZZ Top in Baltimore at Pier 6. The show was at 8:30 PM, but my friend said we have to go up around 2 PM. Here is what I got when I arrived because his daughter is the assistant tour manager for ZZ Top!







    My buddy got to play Frank's drums!!!

    Dusty's bass tech asked if I wanted to hold the furry bass...DUH!!!



    We were no more than 5 feet from them when they came to the edge of the stage (which they did a lot because I was with their tour manager's family)

    Those drums are rad.

    Very cool indeed! I remember the Summer I spent wearing out a cassette tape of Eliminator when it was first released. Just love a bit of Southern Fried Boogie!

    Oh, man... way cool! I am jealous!

    ZZ Top put on the best show I have ever been too, IMHO (Afterburner Tour)... great stuff.
