Texxas Jam '78 (Documentary)
In the early 1970’s, ZZ Top performed at the University of Texas, Memorial Stadium, in Austin, Texas, to 80,000 people who tore up the infield. It was decided that there would never been a rock concert in a football stadium in Texas ever again. College football reigns supreme in Texas.
Several years later, several young men came to Dallas, Texas, and attempted to hold the rock concert of all rock concerts in the “sacred” Cotton Bowl Stadium. On July 4th weekend, in 1978, 100,000 people crammed into the stadium on the hottest day of the decade to watch Aerosmith, Van Halen, Ted Nugent, Heart, Journey, Eddie Money, Head East, Frank Marino and the Mahagony Rush, and Walter Egan. Many drove in from all over the country. Media from the around the world attended in anticipation of the “Woodstock of the South”.

They recall not only their own sets, but one another’s as well with often fond, comedic, and insightful memories.
