I got this idea from another thread.


Is it just me or is Billy Gibbons, the guitarist for ZZ top extremely underated, i have never heard his name or ZZ top in these forums ever. Anyone else agree?

I agree. ZZ Top writes some of the most recognizable riffs ever. I like them.

I haven't really listened to much ZZ Top stuff, but what I have listened to is very catchy. They're stuff is pretty great.

he's pretty technical has a cool way of using pinch harmonics very original not the usual squeals you hear with pinch harmonics

I don't know if he's underrated. He is great, and Satch just raved about him in the current G1.

The beard distracts people from the playing.
There once was a man who really loved salt
So he tied his nose to the sea
And then God came down from his silver throne
And said, 'Honey, that water ain't free

I used to hate ZZ Top, my dad never stopped playing them when growing up.

But then i started playing guitar and i realized how good they were. They are very underrated.

GOIN' BY ME SOME CHEAP SUN GLASSES *DUHDUH...DUH...DUH DUH DAT DAT DAH!!!!

.....sorry 'bout that.
#9
yeah i'd have to say they're decently underrated, from what i've heard they were really cool/unique

Yeah, but I've seen his guitar collection on Guitar World and I think they're butt ugly. No offense to anyone who owns them.
Known.
Some.
Call.
Is.
Air.
Am?

Incoherent - yes.
Without meaning - I'm afraid not.

"Known some call is air am."
Which is to say-

"I am not what I used to be"

i think hes really underated. zz top was the band that introduced me to rock n roll. thank you for recognizing him.

No.

ZZ Top has been mentioned plenty around here. Had you Searched, you would have known this. And because of the complaining about "how underrated" Billy is that you just did, you just voided the idea that he could have been.

This is one of the most meaningless statements ever made in this forum.
We are all now dumber, having sat here and read it.

Billy Gibbons is awesome. Everyone has heard the riff to "La Grange", whether or not they know ZZTop performs the song.

Long live *****houses.

No, hes absolutely right. He has been mentioned several times around here. As well, whenever someone says someone is underrated, they are no longer underrated. Someone has recognized their talent. As well, it seems like a whole bunch of people here like him, so he can't be too underrated.

And don't steal quotes from Billy Madison and use them on the internet.

And frankly, I was never really a ZZ Top fan. La Grange is good, and that songs are catchy, but the bass player is just to lacking for my liking.

^Why can't there be more intelligent people like you around here, deadhead? The majority of people around here have this problem with understanding simple concepts like that.


As for you, chopps. Bugger off until you become a little more educated, and then come on back and try again. Otherwise, don't try to defy logic you can not understand because of it's advancement beyond yourself.

Nah. I've kinda matured a little more than you're average flamer. I only burn their ass a little in the beginning unless they are being incredibley ignorant and can't get away with it

deadhead313313, what's up, man? Haven't seen you around lately.

I've been here. Reporting alot though. Seems like a lot of dumb threads being made lately (more so than usual). I've come to the conclusion that the majority of noobs (who make dumb threads. Not all of them do though) come here at Christmas time, when they got their guitars. So, for about 7-8 months after Christmas, theres a large amount of dumb threads and users. But I'm sure they'll shape up pretty soon.

And UltimateSin is right. They guy probably should figure out what hes talking about before he says something. But, in his case, apply my theory. Hes only been here since January

Except, not.
If one person realizes that someone is awesome, that doesn't automatically void their underrated-ness. Even if the six people that posted in this thread think he's amazing, that doesn't mean he's no longer underrated. Shut up.
