Wow..all that insight from one minute of music...sweet!!

I heard about 3-4 tracks when they played at the HLS&R at Reliant earlier this year, and they sounded prety good. Couldn't tell you what tha names of the songs were, but they sounded (at least theyway they played them live) like older Top.

I actually have a pretty cool story about the new CD. Billy Gibbons was here at an Astros game on Opening Night and he was up in a suite with some guests. He had a demo of the new CD so we went into the studio here and cranked it up. Patti LaBelle was there as well and she was singing backup to the sings. There were only about 6 people in the room so it was a pretty intimate gathering. I thought it sounded great. The guitars sounds very hard and modern rock sounding. Anyway, I plan to pick it up. I couldn't convince Billy to give me his copy back in April!

Amazing, huh? Perhaps I should've just trashed it without even listening to that minute..

That was one of the problems I had with what I heard...

Oh well, maybe i'll give it another chance later on...

Like, at least, THREE minutes this time..
