ZZ Top Sucks. There, I Said It.
It's like they were written by some hormonal 15-year-old boy. And I'm all for the working-man blue-collar ethos in theory, but I am neither a blue collar working man nor a 15-year-old pubescent boy. I am, however, mostly a fan of sharp-dressed men.
*How much hate mail do you think I will get for also admitting that I can't stand Stevie Ray Vaughan? Sorry, Dad. It's just that all I can think about when I hear his music is that band Blues Hammer from the movie Ghost World. "If you like authentic blues, you really gotta check out Blues Hammer. They're so great!"
Maybe I'm not their target audience? Or perhaps I've only heard the "radio hits" and haven't been exposed to the good stuff deep cuts. If that's the case, I'm willing to be re-educated. Tell me what there is to love about ZZ Top.
