ROCK | ZZ Top 

Thankfully, the last couple of ZZ Top records found the band back at its roots: pure, unadulterated, high octane albums, like the classic "Tres Hombres." The band has managed to maintain its cool even in the dark ages of early Empty-V, from which ironically, ZZ Top had its biggest hits. Live, the trio unleashes deceptively simple rock 'n' roll. And they ain't gonna stop. I sat down with Billy Gibbons, the guitar-playing hombre in the group back in 2012 and asked him how will it end? What will be the legacy of ZZ Top?

"How will it end?" he said. "C'mon, we're just getting started. Ask that question in another 43 years. The legacy, one hopes, will be one that highlights the band's three Ts: tone, taste, and tenacity. Oh yeah."

ZZ Top plays with John Fogerty on Saturday, June 23, at CMAC, 3355 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua. 7 p.m. $30-$85. cmacevents.com; zztop.com.
