Artist: ZZ Top Track: "I Got the Six" Album: Eliminator Listen

ZZ Top created a brand of blues-rock that was as unstoppable as the chopped hot rod on the cover of their 1983 classic, Eliminator. It came a decade after their first acclaimed release, Tres Hombres, and showed a band in no danger of slowing down. They took familiar rock cues and wrote songs with familiar strucutre, yet theirs is one of the most recognizable sounds in rock.

ZZ Top comes to the Palace Theatre on Friday, Oct. 10. For info, click here.
