    Great song and cracking video. Not even a return to form cos they never lost form in the first place. WTG boys.

    I'm sure the song has been discussed before but I hadn't seen this video until today. Love that T-shape BFG plays.

    Most pleasing :)
    Not everything in ZZ Top world has been of that standard, of late.

    Video fought it's way back here from 1985 . :D

    Seems that it is basically a 'cover' of that '25 Lighters' track though.
    I kinda prefer the ZZ 'version' ;)

    Damn cool song alright. Only thing with the video is I wish they had synch'd the image with Billy's guitar playing - looks silly when you hear a full tone bend but you can see him strumming away down near the nut. His teeth are looking in good shape though.

    I like the vid (hot girls, cool cars, what's not to like?), although (and this is kind of my only criticism of the album as a whole) Dusty seems to be relegated to a backing musician rather than part of the band.
    I'd have liked the album to have Dusty's vocals a bit further forward in the mix.

    Raining here today :)rolleyes:) so I found myself working out the lick , and then the rest, got it all down pretty good, fairly quick, then grabbed my Mexicano Cabronita and GE Fuzz, dimed that and just played along with this track over and over and over.
    Best fun I have had in ages to be frank (or Billy, or Dusty).

    Triple f'n YaY! - with syrup and cream on.
    Sometimes rainy Sundays just work out perfect ;)

    :cool::D
