ZZ Top Reveals Meaning Behind Classic Song ‘Legs’

HOUSTON-More than three decades after the song was a chart-topping smash and became an instant classic-rock staple, ZZ Top finally revealed to fans Tuesday the meaning behind its iconic hit “Legs.”

“People have been coming up with all these crazy interpretations for 30 years, so we’ve finally decided to just come out and say that the song’s about a woman’s sexy legs and how much they make us want her sexually,” said lead vocalist Billy Gibbons, acknowledging that spelling out the meaning of “Legs” might take away from its longstanding mystique.

“If the song means something else to you, that’s still cool, but there were lots of people who wanted to know what we were driving at.” Gibbons went on to say, however, that most of ZZ Top’s songs, such as the anti-apartheid anthem “Tush,” were pretty straightforward.

Turkey Testicle Festival host not ruffled by competing event

EAST DUNDEE, Ill. (AP) – The owner of a suburban Chicago pub that has held an annual Turkey Testicle Festival for 32 years isn’t testy at all that a nearby community plans to host its own celebration of the unusual dish this November. J.R. Westberg, who owns the Parkside Pub in Huntley, told The Daily Herald that his only criticism of East Dundee’s plan for its own event the day before Thanksgiving is the organizers’ lack of originality. They gave it the exact same name and scheduled it for the same date and time

The Huntley festival often attracts more than 4,000 people to snack on the deep-fried turkey bits, which some attendees consider a “dare food” and prefer doused in ranch dressing or Tabasco sauce. East Dundee businessman Cliff Surges says there’s enough interest to support both festivals and that the new one will target a different demographic. Surges hopes to draw 1,000 to 2,000 people to East Dundee’s event, which he says will be “family-oriented.”

Like the Huntley festival, the new one will raise money for charity. “It’s one of those silly things you can have some fun with and do some good with,” Surges said.

    couldn’t bring myself to do it.

    The only non celebrity story they had was a Touch DNA test that supposedly confirmed that Chelsea is not Bill’s daughter.

    Thought I’d already sunk low enough with the ZZ-Top story. I’ll leave paternity results for the Maury Povich show.
