ZZ Top – Stages

ZZ Top’s ninth studio album, ‘Afterburner’ from 1986, had much more pop sensibilities than even it’s predecessor, the multiplatinum ‘Eliminator’, and this change in musical style, really turned off the fans of the blue/rock trio from Texas.

The album had three Top 40 singles, “Velcro Fly” (#35), the ballad “Rough Boy” (#22) and this one, “Stages” that peaked at #21 on the Hot 100!

Many critics say that this song is the most “pop” sound ZZ Top ever recorded.
