ZZ Top And I Both Thank You 

Today’s song is a thank you to all of you who put up with my ramblings.

“I Thank You” was released by ZZ Top on the album ”Deguello” in 1979.
The song, originally written by Isaac Hayes, is probably my favorite song by the group.
Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard have been together for what seems to be forever. They became a group in 1970 when I was only 5 so I guess that is why I feel like they have always been around. They released their first album ”ZZ Top’s First Album” that same year.
Since then they have only released 15 albums of original material which for a band that has been together for 35 years is pretty amazing. Of course there have been the obligatory “best of’s” and box sets too.
On June 2nd of this year ZZ Top embarked on their “Whack Attack” tour of North America, which at this time is scheduled to run through October.

One of the most interesting things about ZZ Top, to me at least, is the amazing collection of cars that Billy Gibbons owns:

This is without a doubt the most famous of Billy Gibbons’ cars. Her name is Eliminator and is a 1934 Ford 3-Window Coupe. She was the cover model for the album “Eliminator” and was featured in several of the videos from the album also.

My favorite of Billy’s cars has to be this one! CadZZilla is a totally “rethought” 1948 Cadillac. She was designed by Billy Gibbons and Larry Erickson and was built by Boyd Coddington.

Knowing my mother’s tastes I would guess that this one would suit her to a T. She is Kopperhed. A 1950 Ford that is simply outstanding. There are not a lot of pictures of this car available online. This one shows Billy driving her down the road.

Most of Billy Gibbons’ cars are too old to suit Ap0k, but I know for a FACT that he would drive Slampala! Supposedly this is Billy’s daily driver.

Now we come to HogZZilla. While I am not normally too big a fan of motorcycles I have to admit that this 1991 Harley Davidson is pretty dang awesome. The way they matched the tails on HogZZilla and CadZZilla is cool as heck.

There are others too but I can’t find pictures of them to save my life. If anyone knows where I can find a picture of Pearl Necklace I would greatly appreciate if you could send me a note.

Again, thanks for your continued visits. I hope that you enjoy some of the odd stuff I write about. I have been told that I have no clear train of thought on this site, but what you see here is exactly how my brain works. Pretty scary thought huh?
