Forty-four years ago tomorrow, DKR Memorial stadium hosted one of the biggest concerts in Austin's history. The Rompin' Stompin' Texas Size Barn Dance and Barbecue was hosted by Texas trio ZZ Top, with a lineup that included Santana, Bad Company, Joe Cocker and Jimmy Page – and 80,000 sweaty fans.

Things got out of hand.
