ZZ Top Tribute Details

ZZ Top gets the tribute treatment in a collection called A Tribute From Friends that has a release date of October 11.  Of the artists participating, Top fans are most apt to be interested in what the M.O.B, an ad-hoc outfit comprised of Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and guitarist Jonny Lang doing Sharp Dressed Man, Wolfmother's run at Cheap Sunglasses and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, who take on TushNickelback does Legs. Wyclef Jean Rough Boy, Filter landed Gimme All Your Lovin', Duff McKan's group Loaded doees the honors on Got me Under Pressure, Daugherty got Waitin' For The Bus/Jesus Just Left Chicago, Mastadon makes a go of Just Got Paid, Coheed & Cambria do Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers, while La Grange falls to country act Jamey Johnson
Don't be surprised if Grace Potter smokes them all.   Vermont is a long way from the Lone Star State, but this barn-burning act from the Green Mountain State is more than capable of doing one helluva job on this tune - or any other in the Texas trio's catalog.
