    Not a huge fan but I like early ZZ. I'd let Billy sign a gold top than sell it off at the right time and invest.

    This signature stuff reminds of someone who doesn't play an instrument but collects all kinds of crap to sell and make $ Always trying to hustle me with his crap like I am giving you first crack and this is a limited edition ( more like limited to how many he can sell ) Anyway musicians I believe care more about playing and making music than memorabilia collections ( not that there is anything wrong with that ! )

    I almost got to open for ZZ Top once. Instead they ended up getting Boston instead and we opened up for Boston. I was so bummed because I really wanted to open for ZZ. Tom Scholz was a douche and not very friendly. ZZ would've been so much cooler.

    I always liked Degeullo.
    Some say they sold out others say they didn't in the 80's, but one thing is for sure after Eliminator they were a household name before not even close.

    To the purists they "sold out" but as far as a commercial success formula they hit the sweet spot. Merging blues rock with 80's sensibility which if you consider New Wave was all over The place, ZZ propelled MTV.

    If you look at their previous pre-Eliminator live footage, those two out front moved and it was only natural for them to do those dance moves in "Gimme." For non-disco looking guys, it made them look cool although clownish to some.

    I'm sure those three were laughing all the way to their globalists banks.

    Wonder if it truly make sthe guitar more valuable.
    A friend of mine was an extra on "Bones." Billy played the one hot girls Dad, he said he was one of the nicest guys he has met on set, anywhere.
    Funny Billy is like what, 5' 4" and 140 pounds, but he played the "badass" Dad on Bones.

    If Billy wanted to ejaculate on my guitar, I'd allow it. We're not talking about a mere ordinary mortal man with a guitar here!

    What's a good fixative for Texas Splooge? :hmm:
