Like ZZ Top. After four years of toiling in obscurity, they hit the big time in 1973. Rode it for a while and then dropped outta sight. Returned for MTV's big ass years as a band that churned out great songs and even cooler videos. Then, despite drawing crowds through the last 15 years...the band slid back into a period of fans saying "whatev." Maybe it was over exposure on MTV. Maybe it was just that the sound wasn't relevant.
But, all of a sudden...the Top is back. Maybe it's that their over modulated sound is cool again. Maybe it's that today's consumers weren't old enough to get burned out on ther MTV persona.
Whatever it is...welcome back, boys.
