Rumor: ZZ to play at Moncton this year.

Rumor floating around is that ZZ may play (possibly with Bruce Springsteen) at Moncton in Canada this summer. Just a rumor at this point.

No ZZ at Houston Rodeo in 2010.

The headine says it all. The 2010 concert lineup for the HLSR has been announced and no ZZ. No rock at all, for that matter. Wait 'til next year.

Houston Rodeo 2010?

The next big event to look for is the Houston Rodeo. It is our guess,
based on past experience, that ZZ Top will not be playing this year, but
at least one Houston-area music blogger has implied that they will. We
kinda doubt that since they usually don't play two years in a row and
there do not appear to be any "classic rock" days on the calendar, but
thye don't have anything else currently booked, you never know. We
should hear something either way in the next week or two as the Rodeo
makes their final announcements.

Mexican Blackbird in Japan!

Been quiet lately, but there is some cool video/photos of Billy showing
off his new car at a classic car show in Japan in December:
