I guess I just don't get it. There have been times in my life where an early ZZ Top song provided an appropriate diversion at work, say, for a few minutes.
I have to give Gordie credit for a lot of marketing smarts. A lot of great musicians don't even play out any more because the money isn't there, and he seems to have dialed himself in to the young crowd who do still go out and spend money.
But I read the promo on the site, and I don't see how a succession of Gibson/slide-based one-chord tuning songs constitute a unique experience.
I'm too old and too critical, I know, but to my mind R & B was much better in the 60's, and not many people remember those songs. At that time, the movement to one-chord songs was a primitive John Lee Hooker thing, kind of a sub-branch of the folk blues movement.
But musically, it was less advanced. Does this guarantee a larger market, or, in today's terms, ANY market?
