I came across this great article. It’s a writer from a website named, swampland.com that defends the controversial QTV Boxmasters interview. This is right on the money, all of it. I agree with everything he wrote in this article, 100%. Excellent job, Jim Markel! He explained things better than I did.
Like I said before, Billy Bob went off topic about “monster magazines” and “toys” instead of music because Jian went off topic, and Billy Bob did it to be a smartass like I said.
I guess, the interview wasn’t scripted and acted. It was real like this article said. The article is right that it is Billy Bob’s and the band’s right to treat the interview how they feel like.
So to all those out there that are angry at Billy Bob for this interview, you might want to read this, read it all, from the top to bottom. Very good read. I applaud this writer.
Even this guy in this article agreed that Billy Bob wasn’t acting like a jerk at all like I’ve been saying.
Read it here:
Music listeners must understand band interviews. I have seen and read plenty of interviews by famous bands and artists, and believe me…there are way crazier ones than the Boxmasters.
The only reason why people are angry at the Boxmasters interview is ’cause of Billy Bob’s fame as a movie star.
With all these music websites reporting this QTV story, a lot of hateful comments from listeners thinking that the band will fail in music ’cause of that interview. Like I keep saying, the band will get more successful, they will be a hit. The band will be around a long time, whether you like it or not.
As long as they are making the news, they are becoming successful right now. I think they are a fun band and enjoyable to listen to. If the Boxmasters played a show in the Capital District, I’d definitely see them for sure. So hope they come around here for their upcoming tour. Not many people are into this country hillbilly thing, and I like that stuff. I admire the Boxmasters for trying to make that genre big again. I don’t have their albums yet, but I’m going to be looking into getting some soon.
