My beard never grew like theirs


Friday 24 July, 2015 by Uncle Spike



They were part of my youth; a time that spanned that last bit of compulsory schooling, the start of working life and a host of other best remained nameless events that saw teenhood took its toll as it rode roughshod through my world.

Like every young biker, even on a single cylinder 118cc Suzuki, life was all about being ‘one of the lads’, and bands like ZZ TOP featured heavily in one’s aspirations. Of course, my wispy face-fluff was never a match for these guys.

This week’s yesteryear blast from those Tunes I Love takes us back to 1983…

  4. I didn’t discover how great they are until recent years. Obviously, when it comes to great music, I really missed the boat.

  5. Still one of my favorite bands! I’ve seen them every time they come to San Antonio. I can’t help myself!
