Way Back Machine

I received a phone call yesterday with the caller inviting me to the inaugural concert at "The New Backyard" tonight. ZZ Top is playing and we have VIP seats.

What does that mean?

Here are photos of VIP seating:

I saw ZZ Top in December of 1977 at the Mabee Center (must have been torn down or renamed since it no longer exists) in Tulsa Oklahoma. Pete Tickle was there. I haven't seen them since.

I take that back, I did see Billy Gibbons in 1989. He walked in front of the bus I was driving (UT Shuttle) and I nearly hit him.

At least I think it was him. Now that I think about it, it could have been a bum.
