ZZ Top's "I Gotsta Get Paid" is USA Today's "Pick of the Week"!
"The Pick of the Week is I Gotsta Get Paid by ZZ Top, one of four tracks on EP Texicali, the trio's first new studio work in nine years. That "Lil Ol' Band From Texas" unleashes its trademark grit and grease in a raw, bluesy rough-and-tumble treatment of 25 Lighters, the 1998 drug-hustling rap by fellow Houstonians DJ DMD, Lil' Keke and Fat Pat."

The scheduled concert appearance of ZZ Top and 3 Door Down on Saturday, June 9th at the Wind Creek Hotel & Casino Amphitheater was cancelled based on a determination that structural condition of the stage made it unsafe for the performers, their crews and the audience.
ZZ Top issued the following statement, once it was confirmed that both ZZ and 3DD wouldn't be able to perform:
"We're definitely from 'the show must go on' school but had to draw the line this time when we found out that numerous hazards were present at the venue. We couldn't, in good conscience, do the show knowing that the safety for those on and off stage would be in jeopardy. We had hoped the situation would have been addressed and corrected by show time but, sadly, that wasn't the case so we just had to 'pull the plug' for the sake of all concerned. We hope our fans and friends understand that the decision that was made was the only one we could abide in light of those conditions."
Just sending a sincere "Thanks..!" for pumping up a sizzle surrounding the iTunes "TEXICALI" 4 song digital download. A fine reception, indeed…! We'll see ya' at the ZZ TOP show and have a ball. XOXO Billy, Frank, and, Dusty
