This vintage rock tee is for ZZ Top's Expect No Quarter Tour. The tour took place from 1979 to 1981 and was launched in support of the band's sixth studio album Deguello. The word duegello can be translated to mean decapitation or "no quarter" in reference to no surrender in a fight being accepted, this provided the inspiration for the tour name. The set for the tour was a lot less elaborate than the one for their previous World Wide Texas Tour. It did however feature Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hills sporting their now iconic chest length beards. Some of the songs on the tour included "Heard It On the X", "Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers", and their encore "She Loves My Automobile", "Hi-fi Mama", and "Tush".
Duegello was ZZ Top's first album off of Warner Brothers Records. It included the singles "Cheap Sunglasses" and "I Thank You" which was a cover of a Sam & Dave song. The album reached number 24 on the Billboard Pop Albums Chart and later went platinum.
This shirt fits like a modern unisex adult small.
This item is from the estate of Craig MacGregor, the bassist for the band Foghat in the 1970s, 80s, and again in the 2000’s. The item was owned by Craig, a collector of t-shirts, and stored for some time in a basement before it came into our possession. As a result there may be some lingering basement odor. All items are authentic pieces of rock and roll history and in many cases are one-of-a-kind. Further authentication and chain-of-custody can be provided upon request.
