ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons Launches Indiegogo Campaign to Expand His Tequila Company
The campaign aims to reach $250,000 in funding
For $2,500, you’ll get tickets and backstage passes to a ZZ Top or Godsmack concert.
Billy Gibbons, the guitarist from ZZ Top (and occasional guest star on Bones) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to gain wider national distribution for Pura Vida, the tequila company in which he is an investor.
Gibbons, who attended high school with Pura Vida CEO Stewart Skloss, teamed up with the company after sampling the tequila.
“I turned my back on tequila when I was 20, because it turned its back on me,” Gibbons told USA Today. “But if you can get something in a bottle with a pleasing aroma, then we can talk.” The team is hoping to earn donations from 60 million people by the end of the campaign in order to increase distribution and begin testing out new flavors of Pura Vida.
Among the perks of supporting the campaign, Pura Vida is offering a special reserve oak barrel for $14,995, tickets and backstage VIP access to a ZZ Top or Godsmack concert for $2,500, or an autographed Gibson guitar.

Astronomers have discovered two new alien worlds a bit larger than Earth circling a nearby star. The newfound exoplanets, known as HD 7924c and HD 7924d, are "super Earths" with masses about 7.9 and . 6.4 times greater, respectively, than that of our home planet, researchers said. The planets orbit the star HD 7924, which lies just 54 light-years from the sun — a mere stone's throw considering the size of the Milky Way, which is on the order of 100,000 light-years wide. SEE ALSO: The strangest alien planets The discovery brings the number of known planets in the HD 7924 system to three. (Another super Earth, called HD 7924b, was spotted there in 2009.) HD 7924b, HD 7924c and HD 7924d all lie closer to their host star than Mercury does to the sun. They complete one orbit in five, 15 and 24.
