Albuquerque - Tingley Coliseum, USA
55. ZZTOP, Tommy Totone and Rose Tattoo! $10.50 Tingley Coliseum, Albuquerque, New Mexico 1/1/83
I was amazed that Rose Tattoo had come to the US. John had turned us onto them and I really liked some of their songs a lot. They played a quick 30 minute set but were excellent! I remember that Angry Anderson drank 6 Heineken darks in their 30 min set and I don't think I had ever seen anyone do that! We dug them. Tommy Totone was awful and the crowd was not into him at all but he still hung in there and played 40 minutes. ugh.......
ZZTOP were still touring the El loco lp and put on another smoking show! As I recall, they played a similar set as when we saw them in the summer of 82', but we were not drunk this time and had a better view.. I still don't know why I never recorded the band any of the three times I saw them in the early 80's.........
