So which ZZ Top tune will Jimmy cover

Post by V-town Fin Truck » January 12, 2016 12:30 pm

.... That's the question I have. You know he is going to, and I am sure Larry will love it...

And while we're at it, you know a David Bowie cover/tribute will appear... Any guesses on that one?

I don't know that many Bowie songs, and it's been years since I heard anything other then sharp dressed man from ZZtop.

Seriously??? Are we going to start whining about cover songs already??? It's too early in the year for that. I'm happy to see him touring again this year. For anyone who's worried about cover songs, don't buy tickets to his concert because I have a tip for you. There will be cover songs! Like I said, glad he's back for another year!

If he does a ZZ Top song, it's gotta be Tush or Tube Snake Boogie.

At what point am I whining? Just some friendly speculation on what it/they will be. Calm down, I happen to like several of the covers.

You weren't whining at all. What I think you did was open up a nasty can of worms for people that despise Jimmy doing covers. Sorry, didn't mean to imply you were. I enjoy a couple of covers as well.

I can see Jimmy standing there in his T-Shirt and Shorts singing "Sharp Dressed Man" with Mac and Peter laying down some serious guitar licks behind him....

I know the voices aren't real but they do have some good ideas.....

I like the covers too - just wish he would switch up some of the covers on tour like BEG and Southern Cross - even though I really like them it seems they have become a staple like Margaritaville...

Did he name it "I don't Know" because he literally didn't know what to call it? lol

Per their website ZZ Top is in Europe a this summer in June and July so they probably won't be the opening act for all the shows. http://www.zztop.com/tour/

If Bubba does a ZZ Top cover it needs to be 'Mexican Blackbird.' :lol:
