    Pretty stoked that we signed the contract to open for ZZ Top. Bad Company and Cheap Trick May 18th in Houston Texas at Cynthia Woods Pavilion. I am a fan of all three bands. Huge stage ...so I will pull out the old Vibroking and let her rip.

    Well.....

    Excellent!

    I presume friends/family will be employed to take pics/movies for your personal posterity. (if that's at all possible these days)
    Hope the gig goes well for all....enjoy.

    Do tell Billy "hi" for me....(I'm just a kidder)

    Carry on....

    Yep. It’s ZZs 50th anniversary tour. I know Billy and have jammed with Frank at a private party before. Looking forward to hanging out with them.

    Sounds like it will be a fun time. The Europe shows are looking huge, a boatload of bands are booked to play. Love YouTube for that, by the next day there will be live video of them all for those who can't get there.
