The boys in that lil ol band from Texas finally released a concert DVD and I'm glad to see they loaded up on the 70's material with Heard It On The X,Just Got Paid,Waitin' For The Bus,Jesus Just Left Chicago,Tush,I'm Bad I'm Nationwide,Cheap Sunglasses,LaGrange and even one my blues faves Blue Jean Blues which at this point is also my favorite performance on the DVD.It also includes a bonus where the fellas are playing poker and shooting the shit about their career which goes on for about 18 minutes.It's a little all over the place but a still a must for any ZZ fan.

Here's a review that's pretty much dead on,at least IMO if anyone's interested. (http://www.dvdmg.com/zztoplivefromtexas.shtml)

I remember when La Grange hit the radio. I'm pretty sure I first heard it on the AM dial. I was in junior high and was just learning to play a guitar. Somebody showed me how to play those opening chords. Good times.

Taking a guess I'd say 34-35 years. I'm pretty sure I was in 9th grade. That song makes me think of drinking beer in the alley.

Actually they were formed in 1969 and released their debut in 1971

Tres Hombres was released in 1973. Sure was a long time ago.
