Ritual Dance: Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top

Carlo McCormick

Legendary rock band ZZ Top really don't need much in the way of an introduction. The sunglasses-clad, long-bearded Texas-based trio has been rocking all kinds of pants off since they formed in 1969. The Eliminator Collector's Edition CD/DVD, which marks the 25th anniversary of their iconic 1983 album, is out in August.

I'll take you from step one to stage: Crawl from the sleeping bag or night-before wreckage, whichever the case may be, make way to the ever-present jar of hot sauce or jalapenos, climb into wardrobe, kiss the sweethearts along the way, up on the deck to raise hell.
