64 = one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel.
Yup. Gets you to thinking about quite a few things about your life and things you’ve done. I only have 3 or 4 things that I regret. Other than those, I’ve pretty much done things on my own terms. Hopefully, when the time comes, I’ll go out that way.

I asked my Instagram followers if there was any way that the β€œLegs” video would be considered acceptable for release were ZZ Top to make it again today. The answer is obviously β€œHell no,” but it’s not for the reasons you might think. Turns out that β€œLegs”, for all its flash and sex appeal, is primarily objectionable in the modern context because it is, at its heart, a story of Christian morality...

Take a second look at the video. We have two attractive young people who are rescued from their β€œfamilies” so they can run off together and start a new life together. It’s a hugely conventional message. The people who stand in their way personify the various deadly sins: anger, gluttony, lust, pride. They, on the other hand, turn the other cheek to their tormentors and are rewarded for having done so. Another conventional message: the girl has to be β€œfixed up” so she can appeal to the man. He, on the other hand, merely has to be hardworking and earnest β€” which he displays by suffering in the hot restaurant with the fussy customers.
The Christian Moral Fable Known As β€œLegs”, By ZZ Top

I was around 10-11 when I bought my first album (literally a vinyl album) it was Eliminator by ZZ Top. Loved that album, was really shocked when I heard Sleeping Bag--constantly on MTV back then. I liked that ZZ Top had great looking girls in their videos, along with a genuine positive message of the little guy winning in the end.

As a boomer who graduated HS in '75, this is really sad. Great band, and it's sad to see a lot of the old "classic rockers" dying off. His last show with the band was recent, July 18, 2021. This marks the end of a run of over 50 years for the original 3 members of the band staying intact. Wow.

Go easy, bro.

I always liked them, nice straight forward rock. More recently I noticed how much I love that nonstop, rapidly oscillating noise underlying β€˜Legs’, is it a synth line or a guitar effect? Idk.
It is the drums.
