Gibbons Sick On Expensive Wine
ZZ TOP star BILLY GIBBONS was left red-faced after guzzling a $100,000 (GBP57,000) bottle of classic wine during a recording session - and promptly throwing up. The guitarist joined pal AL JOURGENSEN to record PRUNE TANG for MINISTRY's new album and was impressed when the studio owner left him four bottles of premiere red wine for his efforts. Jourgensen tells rock magazine Revolver, "He (studio owner) has this exotic wine collection, and he opened four $100,000 bottles of wine and gave them to Billy and me. "We chugged 'em. We didn't even sift it around the glass... We drank four bottles of wine and ate a s**tload of jalapenos, which immediately made Billy sick... He launched it on his own beard."
