Man , a slew of Old Houston Freaks that played together or hung out turned 62 all within a couple of Months,at least those of us who have survived .
I still love playing with Lanier Greig unless they put Founding Member of ZZ Top since we play more Jazz Rock fusion and nothing like ZZ Top , and that is what people expect. Gibbons has had one hell of a run , I still remember The Moving Sidewalks that seemed to go from amateurs to Killer in such a short time , a month was like a year back then , goes by fast the older you get , that part is a drag . We did resurrect a song originally written for ZZ Top by Lanier , just a great song .
Would Love to see Lanier play with Gibbons again , he complimented Gibbons stile meshing into one instrument with one hand while the other hit the bass .Listen to Miller's Farm and Salt Lick. The show at Love Street with Lanier was the first Texas Super Group,you could feel it. One more Time would be great ,I turned 62 Dec.3rd.
