The “Tres Hombres” are bringing their raging Texas blues to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Since 1971, ZZ Top has entertained audiences with their charismatic live shows and iconic blues rock. With the spirit of a band of Old West outlaws, Billy Gibbons, Dusty Rhoades and Frank Beard have rampaged across the decades, creating a dedicated listening audience in their wake.
While it has been four years since their last studio album, ZZ Top have brought their fan base satisfaction through a collection of their 40 most popular songs. Many bands tend to call these types of albums their “greatest hits,” but ZZ Top calls their collection “The Very Baddest.” This release features fan favorites such as “Tush,” “Cheap Sunglasses,” “Tube Snake Boogie” and many more. “The Very Baddest” also includes remastered versions of track such as “Beer Drinkers & Hellraisers” and “Pearl Necklace.” These studio recordings are superb, but nothing compares to experiencing this band in a live setting.
