I hope there's an instrumental version that nixes ZZ Top from the tracks and allows us to hear only the quality mixes of David Guetta. Of course, if anyone could make ZZ Top bearable to listen to, it would be him.

Which part of that is Classic rock? I see Korn and Skrillex.

ZZ Top has been using the four on the floor disco beat for a long time.  EDM isn't a stretch.

I'll give BG the benefit of the doubt and check this out before I judge.

Zz top has been uninteresting and irrelevant for 30 years

Already got tickets (meet & greet Front Row) for ZZ Top and Jeff Beck 'Beck and Beards' Tour in St. Augustine, FL    I love and am 100% open to almost ANY genre of music that makes my toes tap, my body dance and my soul shine.


Here's another awsome example of two genres of music sounding GREAT together...

Skrillex & Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley - Make It Bun Dem ...



Me and 100 million people like it anyway...

People who complain about zz top have never seen them in concert.

Disco and Rock have had a long, weird relationship. Generally it works out well, with some sad exceptions. And as an above poster noted, ZZ Top isn't new to a 4/4. It could be neat.

ZZTOP has been shiatty for a long time. Pretty much all went downhill when they released "Velcro Fly"

Madonna is working with Avicii. This is an attempt by old rockers to staye relevant and jump on the EDM bandwagon.

How how how how will this work?

Oh my God this is going to be worse than when Dave Edmunds tapped Jeff Lynne to produce Information!!!

Ok, this could be better then Willy Nelson's reggae album, but what radio station in Houston would even play this.
 
2014-08-10 08:59:48 PM  
people gave them hell for using synths on afterburner.. and that was arguably thier best album, at least sales and chart wise.

ZZ-top can do whatever they want as far I'm concerned. they are solid musicians and as said earlier, put on a hell of a live show.

Old news is old.

They worked with a lot of EDM and techno sound in the aptly 90s.
 
2014-08-10 10:07:45 PM  
early 90s. Sorry.

paulleah: early 90s. Sorry.


The 80'shiats were inspired by Kraftwerk. Billy is an innovative guy.

I was actually thinking of tracks like Viva Las Vegas. I think they wrote hanging out in Austin with the BHSurfers and Ministry on some tracks.

I love zz top, and I'm one of just a few folks who can say they saw the top OPEN for Billy Bob Thornton and the box masters

Rock and Roll was originally something you were supposed to dance to.
