ZZ Top has recently signed to American Recordings for their next album, which will be produced by Rick Rubin. Rubin’s been awfully busy lately producing Metallica’s next album, Jakob Dylan’s new album and now ZZ Top’s next album:
The veteran rock trio is planning to hit the studio with Rubin producing, for an album more in keeping with “La Grange”-era ZZ Top than its pop-friendly ’80s sound, according to manager Carl Stubner.
I’d love to see ZZ Top going back to the La Grange days. In other ZZ Top news, they have recently released a new live DVD titled Live From Texas 2007.
Josh: Thanks for stoppin’ by! I’m almost outta here.
ZZ Top’s Rhythmeen 1996 album is all but ignored.
I just love that stuff. It’ll be very interesting what Rick Rubin and Billy G. cook up.
Here’s a link to some Rhythmeen clips– if you’re not already familiar with it:

Definately welcome news for TOP fans,as Mr Rubin has always been a plus to any artist he has worked with! Just give a listen to his past work such as with the RHCP’s or Johnny Cash and that should end any debate on his potential to be a positive for the ”TOP”to put some great music from this collaboration.And i must agree with the other blog ”RHYTHMEEN” Was very good albeit all but forgotten!
