    Damn the Torpedoes will definately be one of them, and who does really like Aerosmith's newer stuff, Honkin' on Bobo is a pretty cool album but its all covers so I don't know if it counts haha

    I never get tired of Train Kept a Rollin by Aerosmith(I don't think there has ever been a tour they didn't perform it) & it was Aerosmith's version that got me into the tune back in the 70's. Now I have over 20 versions of it by artists such as: Motorhead,Hanoi Rocks,
    Yardbirds,Johnny Burnette Trio,Twisted Sister,Tiny Bradshaw,Zeppelin,Jeff Beck,Tragiclly Hip to name a few off the top of my head.

    I seen ZZ Top twice once in support of 'Deguello' & once in Support of 'Eliminator' & they put on spectacular shows both times.

    I saw the "Deguello" tour myself Bucky, and it was a fantastic show, the boys were in their prime back then.

    I don't think i can count how many covers have been done of that song, I do get sick of the album version, I've heard it soooooo much, but live it had a new energy so I wasn't sick of it, same thing with "Love in an Elevator" when they played it

    I would've loved to hear those 2 tunes with the new energy you mentioned. It definitely sounded like a pretty decent show:cheers:

    Just out of curiosity,do you remember who opened for them when you seen them???

    One of the 2 times I seen ZZ Top,Loverboy opened & the other time was Sammy Hagar.
    Loverboy was amazing for that show as was Sammy(I always loved Sammy's old band before he joined VH)

    I saw them at Jones Beach this year and they were AMAZING! Steven rocked as usual, as was said before I don't think I could do what he's doing at 60!

    I'll be going to see Joe Perry on November 10th at the Fillmore too :D
