Ah my friends, it’s All Fool’s Day, but I ain’t doin’ no foolin’ around cause it’s time for another BATTLE OF THE BANDS. I have something special planned for you today and I want to get right to it, so I’m gonna dispense with the normal yak.
I will tell you one thing about today’s BATTLE, first I likes it a lot. And, (OK, this is two things.) This is a BATTLE between two artists one of which I have been a big fan of for some time, even seen ‘em in person a time or two and truly enjoy their music and the show they put on. BUT, without giving my vote away just yet, I will say that in this BATTLE, although I think both versions are very, Very, VERY good; I’ll be casting my vote for the artist that I like well enough, but to whom I have not favored as I have the other. Confused, yet? I know I am. Let’s get to the music.
First up those blues, boogie, hard rockers from Texas, ZZ Top with their hit LaGrange:
Next up that ole country, southern, blues rocker of a country boy, Hank Williams Jr. or Bocephus doing his cover of the same:
Now I sure do hope you guys know what to do (but, don’t worry, cause I’m gonna tell you anyway). Tell me who you vote for in the comment box and also give me some inkling as to why. When you finish up over here head on over to the home of Mr. BOTB hisself Stephen T. McCarthy. Stephen has a special BATTLE of his own going on (NO FOOLIN’) and he will also provide the list of all the other participants. Please try to vote at all of the sites.
I’ll be back on the 7th to reveal my vote and the winner of this here BATTLE. Until that time H-A-P-P-Y T-R-A-I-L-S!
Now that you’ve decided who to vote for, wanna give a guess as to which artist of the two I’ve been a fan of for some time?
