ZZ TOP IN THE SPACE

ZZ Top
We were sent over a link to a video of conversation between ZZ Top Dusty Hill who dropped by NASA Mission Control in Houston during a break in ZZ Top's tour schedule, to chat with his buddy Astronaut Commander Michael Fossum, now aboard the International Space Station.

Back in April, ZZ Top sent "Flyin' High," a song from the band's forthcoming (as yet untitled) album to Mike while on the launch pad aboard the Soyuz spacecraft and it made it's world wide (universe-wide?) debut during the flight to the ISS.

In the video you'll see Fossum along with Russian cosmonaut Segei Vokov and Satoshi Furukawa of Japan's JAXA space agency who were on the Soyuz flight with Fossum for the "Flyin' High" debut. Dusty's wife "Chuck" (Charlene) and ZZ Top tour manager Pablo Gamboa are also seen and heard chatting with Mike in this clip. The reference to "Aggie" is a reflection of the fact that both Chuck and Mike are Texas A&M alums.
