Pick of the Day: ZZ Top

Better late than never, I guess. ZZ Top, as most of you doubtlessly recall, was supposed to semi-co-headline a show at Mosaic Stadium with Aerosmith on Aug. 9. Then in early August at a gig in South Dakota, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler fell off the stage and broke his shoulder. That led to the concert being cancelled, and ultimately, the break-up of Aerosmith. Guitarist Joe Perry now has his own band, by the way, which hits Regina Jan. 28 in support of Motley Crue at the Brandt Centre.

Tonight, though, ZZ Top is rocking the Conexus Arts Centre. In the press material I accessed, there's no mention of a back-up band. Mind you, with nearly 40 years in the biz, the Texas-based blues-rock trio don't exactly lack for tunes to do a full-length concert of their own. To get you in the mood to boogie, here's video off ZZ Top's recent concert DVD for "Sharp Dressed Man". (YouTube)
