The Saratoga Performing Arts Center’s summer season rolled into September with the rompin’, stompin’ double-bill of Detroit’s Kid Rock and veteran Texas trio ZZ Top with Uncle Kracker opening the show.

Who in the USA doesn’t know at least one ZZ Top song? If you don’t, you’d have to be from another planet or way too young to vote. These three ambassadors of Texas-style blues-rockin’ boogie have been at it for more than four decades now, and they’re still going strong all these many years later.
Listening to Billy Gibbons’ explosive, guitar-driven set at the Times Union Center last Saturday night, you’d think their music hasn’t aged a day – no matter how old you were when you first heard them. O.K., maybe there’s a little more grey in Gibbons’ and bassist Dusty Hill’s longer beards, but moustachioed drummer Frank Beard could pass for mid-forties easily.
