    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.

    You’re right Jeep, the best concert ever for me was ZZ Top in the old now demolished Atlanta Omni about 1975 or so…..I think my hearing was destroyed that night but it was worth it, once they started playing, they never let off the gas with song after song with no break in between…..I had never heard a live concert that was louder and more kick a$$ than that awesome performance…….I still wonder how they got that much music magic out of one lead guitar with Billy Gibbons, Dusty on base and Frank Beard on drums….Hard to figure where the music has gone and that 50 years ago there were so many great bands……….My grown children love the old school rock & roll that I now realize just how lucky I was to grow up with and took for granted at the time like The Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Who, AC/DC, The Kinks, The Zombies and on and on……..Rock & Roll died and I wonder where it went………Just damn

    I saw them about the same time. I think just after they released Fandango. My all time favorite of theirs though is La Grange. Lot of energy for a 3 person band. In everything they did. We're getting old fellas.

    I imagine Dusty is easin' down the highway in a new Cadillac and has a fine fox in front, and three more in the back.

    First time I saw them was at the Texas Moon Palace in the late '70s in Amarillo, second time was in Norfolk in the early '80s.

    The '80s and MTV killed rock and roll, IMO. Mindless idiots watch the TV only for the videos and didn't have a clue the music (for the most part) sucked.

    While we all must cross over the river when our time comes, thank God the music will always live on
