s the personal trainer and bodyguard for ZZ Top during their Eighties heyday, Neal Cordell incorporated some of the tackling skills he developed as an All-Memphis defensive lineman at South Side High School. After 186 concerts with the “little ole band from Texas,” Cordell has a Pavlovian reaction when certain classic rock songs burst from his radio speakers. Says Cordell, “They told me I inspired one of their songs: ‘Stages’ from Afterburner.” Cordell turned 72 in October and lives the life you might expect of a former ballplayer (outfielder at Memphis State), coach (football at Ridgeway High School, softball at Rhodes College), and health club owner (Cordell opened The Peabody’s facility in the early Eighties, where he met ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons). Once a 220-pound football player (in high school), Cordell now checks in at 156 pounds
