Way back in the deep and distant past, when I was in my youth,  myself and three chums had a band going.

We did a cover of Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers (at that time ZZ Top were not big at all in the UK).

So it gets my vote.

Was one of your chums Eddie Van Halen?  Because then I might have to change my vote.

Believe it or not, there is a YouTube video of VH covering this ZZTop tune.  That should be option 3 for a vote

They're headed for a whole lot of trouble.

Actually Clapton vs. Sabbath’s Snowblind might be an interesting contest.

Sadly, even EVH couldn't make us sound good! :rofl1:

I forgot all about this, haven't seen it in years, great call! It's a song that fits right into VH's wheelhouse, though I like the slower tempo of ZZ's version.

 

Billy Gibbons did the right hand fretting notes on the neck thing in this solo, which was back in 1973 -- five years before VH1 came out. Hearing Eddie doing that solo and putting his own tapping style into it sounds like a proper follow-up.
