Quote: "We're very fortunate that it all came together as easily as it did... Everybody jumped in very quickly and wanted to be a part of it. The song selections were a smooth process. I was prepared for trouble, with 12 bands all wanting to play La Grange. But everybody had their own favourite ZZ Top song they wanted to do. There was no fighting over who was going to do what." Billy Gibbons was surprised how easy it was to put together new ZZ Top tribute album ZZ Top: A Tribute From Friends.
