There are few American classic rock bands that are bigger than ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Today, the bands take up a huge chunk of the classic rock radio airwaves. More importantly, both bands have stood the test of time and tragedy to continue making killer music. With ZZ Top coming from Texas and Skynyrd hailing from Florida, these titanic bands encapsulate the sound of the South. Next year, fans of all ages will get to see these two iconic bands share stages across the country.
