I just now learned about the Billy Joe Shaver shooting.

According to Billy's lawyer, he shot a guy in the check outside a joint called Papa Joe's Texas Saloon on Interstate 35, 89 miles north of Austin. The lawyer says it was self defense.

He was jailed only briefly, then did a free show at Waterloo Records Tuesday night.

Oh lord, Billy!
