I almost never leave a response, but i did a few searching and
wound up here ZZ TOP set to play Lima Civic Center Oct. 25.
And I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind.
Could it be just me or does it appear like some
of these responses look like they are left by brain dead
folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional
sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
Would you list of every one of your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
