Other than that, I really like Grand Funk Railroad and UFO a lot and would love to see them. I can stomach 38 Special in small doses (let's say a set)..the rest I'd be out in the parking lot drinking thru I think.....ZZ Top especially pisses me off in that it's talent wasted for the most part...they hit it big with that goofy synth sound as a backing track on Eliminator
and never let go of it....they've been coasting ever since. Billy Gibbons is a great guitar player, no disputing that...but he could do so much more than he does and it makes me mad...as a result, I don't know if I could sit thru a set of theirs or not now.
I saw Cheap Trick in '94.... great stage presence and an excellent show. I saw 38 Special sandwiched between REO and Skynard.... they were pretty good in camparision.
I agree with your take on ZZ top. I liked their early stuff... La Grange
has one of the coolest blues riffs there is.... but their later stuff leaves a lot to be desired IMO.
