Peanuts Gang – La Grange

Last nite I Googled ZZ Top to see if there is currently happening with the band. So surprise what came up that caught my attention was a video that does not show the Texas trio. The video is the Peanuts Gang characters appear to be performing ZZ Top’s classic “La Grange”. Charlie Brown absolutely appears to be singing the song also playing guitar accompanied by Snoopy on Bass and Pigpen on the Drums. A traditional boogie with some Billy Gibbons mumbling over the top as one of the great rock songs by one of the most underrated bands. The initial guitar work on this tune was based on the blues rhythm famous by John Lee Hooker. Probably best listened to while driving on an empty Princess Highway which I did a few dozen years ago from Wollongong to Melbourne in return. Such a classic song and memorable cartoon characters make for a lot of fun. (nDy)
