The Texas blues-rock trio will be headline Friday, February 14, at the AT&T Center — Valentines Day. Seems fitting, considering how sexual the group’s lyrics can be.
After all, subtle these boys ain't.
Take the band's '80s tune “Pearl Necklace.” Sure, guitarist Billy Gibbons could be talking about jewelry, but more likely he's suggesting something involving a targeted ejaculation. Especially when this lyric comes up: “She was gettin’ bombed, and I was gettin’ blown away.”
No, it doesn’t sound like Gibbons was headed out the door to Kay Jewelers.
Also, consider the song “Big Shiny Nine,” which includes the lyrics “Big shiny nine, she’s mine all mine/Flowin’ down the front of my old blue jeans.” Yeah, it could be about a gun. But it could also could be about his penis. “It’s all right now/I’m fingering my big black shiny nine.”
