"IF THE LIGHTS GO OUT, BEIN' IN TEXAS, WE won't have too much trouble finding a good time," says Billy Gibbons. "At midnight we'll play 'Let's Go Get Stoned' by Ray Charles, then we kind of twist into a version of 'Everybody Must Get Stoned' by Bob Dylan. Kind of an inebriation theme. What will I be drinking at midnight? Champagne, of course. White Star preferred."  ZZ TOP play the Compaq Center in Houston with Lynyrd Skynyrd. The show is sold out.
