Live From Texas


ZZ Top guitarist Billy F. Gibbons is a tough cat to interview. He’s been there, done that and has very little patience for prying journalists. That’s why, the “Poker Game” bonus feature segment of the 2008 ZZ Top DVD on Eagle, Live From Texas is such a hoot. During a three way poker game between Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard, the trio comes alive in a nicotine filled room, nearly interviewing each other while having a blast discussing highlights of the band’s 40+ year career. And that’s just one of the bonus features on a full length live in concert DVD featuring the band caught live in the Lone Star state in November 2007. Having just inked a new “major” record label in 2008, ZZ Top are one of the great American rock and roll treasures and Live From Texas finds the band cutting a rug through live versions of their biggest hits. The DVD features numerous bonus bits including the “Poker Game” segment, the “Dallas Show Day,” chronicling the filmed show, a “Photo Shoot” segment and a stunning ZZ video of the Jimi Hendrix classic “Foxy Lady,” which makes sense especially after watching Gibbons and company reminisce about their meeting with Hendrix four decades back. If you love ZZ Top, you won’t want to miss this extraordinary up close and personal live chronicle of Gibbons and company. Another reason to check this out includes prominent digi-pak artwork and a fine DVD booklet teaming with pictures from the Dallas concert and sterling liner notes from long time ZZ Top associate Tom Vickers. www.zztop.com / www.eaglerockent.com
