Veteran rockers, ZZ Top, have announced that they are to break up just as soon as they tour the world another twenty times in as many years.
Citing musical differences and a desire to make lots of money guitarist, Billy Gibbons, told us:
"We are using the Ole Blue Eyes principal; trying to get fans to think that we are going to split up and thus maximising sales. All the big bands are doing it nowadays. They call it the farewell tour and it lasts about 10 years.
Then when we do split up we lay doggo a few months and announce the comeback tour and that goes on for another coupe of years. It simple and fool-proof"
