On this Sunday’s episode, Hagar shoots the breeze with ZZ Top guitarist and vocalist Gibbons.

Asked about what he likes to do when he’s not rocking on stage, Gibbons sums it up with one word: “Pajamas. Pajamas are very important.” Throughout his career, Gibbons’ love for the comfortable clothing has become well known by artists who have toured with ZZ Top over the years. He’s even developed his own creative codename for them, revealing, “Pajamas can also be referred to as your ‘Fine French Leisure Suit’, when you need that kind of cover. Derek Rose of London, or Walmart. You take your pick.”

Watch Gibbons crack up his friend of over three decades…
