Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

That's what is going through the rumor mill. The Web site Anti-Music quotes Billy Gibbons thusly:

"We just inked a deal with Rick Rubin that will be announced shortly. And I'm sure he's got plans to make way to drag us off the touring trail back into the studio, which will be a nice excursion."

If true, the question becomes, what will form will Rubin's overhaul take time?

If he got Johnny Cash to sing Trent Reznor songs, will he have Billy G covering, I dunno, the Beastie Boys? I think a Texas boogie version of "She's Crafty" might be just my type of song. -- John Nova Lomax

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
