Paperback Rocker #11 – The Best Lil’ Chicken Ranch in La Grange


In this episode, I return after a bout with the flu to talk about ‘The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas’, including the true story of the Chicken Ranch outside La Grange. I discuss ZZ Top’s Worldwide Texas Tour, which lasted from 1975 until 1978 and featured an impressive list of opening acts, including Elvin Bishop, Marshall Tucker Band, Aerosmith, BOC, Ted Nugent, the Outlaws, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, J Geils Band, Johnny and Edgar Winter, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Rory Gallagher, Blackfoot, Foreigner, Muddy Waters, and Starz.

I watched ‘All That Jazz’, too, about Bob Fosse, and I give my impressions of that movie, including how many cigarettes and Dexedrine pills I believe he took each day. Hope you enjoy the episode!
