    Looks like they've got him "under pressure".

    Loves me some BG.
    Never read about him having the same problems like so many of his contemporaries.
    Indeed, a Class Act!

    I agree - never heard a bad word about The Reverend's conduct or manners. Seems sometimes, like everyone I know has met him here or there, and smiles thinking about it.

    My gripe is 100% about what a commodity ZZ Top show consists of, last 30 years or so. I long for those early, fantastic ZZ Top performances that set everyone's imagination afire. If Billy has to fire some people and bring in some new energy, I would recommend he do this.

    Sometimes we have friends, that are so dear to us, we can't bear to tell them when something needs attention. I think this gentleman is crucial enough, somebody needs to give it to him straight.

    I saw them only once, but it was in 1974. I don't need to see what they became since then.

    Funny, I saw them with John Fogerty a few years ago. They were both great sets. However, the people around me who were slamming beers all night had plenty to complain about how bad everyone played.

    I'd go see either one again.

    Just my two cents that nobody asked for.

    Illustrates the difference between different parts of the country. Seeing someone wearing a mask outside would be unusual here. I visited my sister in GA for Thanksgiving, and outside of the employees at a McDonald's in north Florida and some folks at rest areas, I didn't see a mask all week. I would imagine that Texas is the same.

    I would like to meet him, not really a "fan" type person I don't seek autographs or anything, but it seems like he would have a bunch of great stories to tell.

    Plus he has my fav guitar tone, love his playing.

    He's always seemed like such a nice guy.

    On another note, I like his signature strings by Dunlop.
