This is not a new song. Many of you will remember it.... from a few years back

It is certainly in the style of ZZ Top and it has that Dusty Hill bottom end going on driving it along those dark, Texas backroads....

Enjoy: It's simply called the Caddy Song

The Caddy Song

I post this as homage to Dusty. His spirit lives on.

Very sorry to hear of Dusty’s passing, love ZZ Top.

This is great, Herb! You are definitely channeling Billy Gibbons with that guitar work, love the pick harmonics. Perfect vocal too. And the track itself would fit right in with their set list.

Very well done, really enjoyed this one.

True dat!

Thanks for the timely re-post, Herb --especially since I hadn't heard the original. This is absolutely perfect for the occasion. Yeah, great bottom topped off by your great top of guitar playing.

Hmmm. I guess that comment was so good it had to be posted twice.

Hi Herb,

Yes - this sure sounds like ZZ Top to me.

Good guitar work also - rhythm, lead and slide.

I particularly like the way the Rhythm guitar moves around the stage while being played.

Well done

Best Regards
Nigel

You wrote a tribute not knowing it would become such.

We've listened to them for decades and you captured the vibe for sure.

Great performances!

The thread title made me click it. Definitely a ZZ Top vibe, both in terms of arrangement and vocals. Great job!

Nice tribute Herb! It sounds like Billy, Dusty and Frank joined you on this one! The influence these guys have had on players over the last 50 years cannot be measured! I believe people like Stevie Ray Vaughan and other high profile players were influenced in their work to a high degree by ZZ Tops first three albums (First Album, Rio Grande Mud and Tres Hombres). Billy Gibbons would throw that comment right back though saying he was influenced by Muddy Watters, Freddie King etc. Thanks, Torrey

I wasn't around when you first posted I suppose as I don't remember it. It is certainly ZZ Topish. Good tribute. Too bad Dusty Hill passed away. They carved out a very deep notch in the history of Rock and Roll for themselves.

I 1st encountered ZZTop in 74 or 75 ...the drummer in the band I was in had their record ...the ONLY "white" folk record he owned which is radical for a Caucasian teen in the mid 70s of suburban Australia.
As a result the band has held a special place in my thoughts BUT, oddly, they're not a band who's music I enjoy.
This is a fitting tribute - has a sense and style solidly set.
Maybe the truth about the fake Zombies will come out now.

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
