Report: In defense of Billy Bob and the Boxmasters…read this…

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.

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.

Cool Videos: The Boxmasters live performances…yes, these guys can play and are talented…

Live performances of the Boxmasters from youtube. Yes, I think they are talented. They are pretty tight and can play their instruments. Fuck the Canadians. They don’t understand their country and old rock thing they want to bring back to the mainstream.

Report: The Boxmasters cancels Canadian tour with Willie Nelson after getting booed in Toronto…

Willie Nelson broke the news on his official website that the Boxmasters have cancelled the rest of their Canadian tour after the band getting booed at a concert in Toronto. Willie Nelson’s website doesn’t even know the reason the Boxmasters cancelled the tour, but Willie will continue the tour without Billy Bob’s band.

From Willie Nelson’s site:

Don’t Canadians have a sense of humor? Unfortunately not. They seem to hate Americans for some reason.

Cool Video: Here is proof that the QTV Billy Bob interview was faked and scripted…

Check out this older Boxmasters interview in a different radio station. In this radio interview with Billy Bob Thornton, Billy Bob is much nicer, friendly and more profesional acting in this one. Billy Bob is even smiling and joking around, laughing and stuff in this interview.

So his interview with QTV is definitely faked and scripted, Billy Bob was acting in that QTV interview. I think that QTV footage will be used for Joaquin Phoenix’s documentary movie with other celebrities impersonating him like Billy Bob at QTV and Ben Stiller at the Oscars are the ones spoofing, Joaquin so far.

I think people hating on Billy Bob for his QTV interview doesn’t have a sense of humor and taking things way too seriously. I thought his QTV interview was hilarious. People just don’t understand Billy Bob’s weird sense of humor. He’s just a really strange guy. Billy Bob has always been like this, so why do people find Billy Bob’s QTV interview a surprise?

See the old interview of Billy Bob being all nice and friendly in this video here.

Is Billy Bob Thornton spoofing Joaquin Phoenix? That’s what it’s looking like to me. I know Billy Bob is much friendlier and more profesional in interviews than this. I think Billy Bob is clearly acting in this interview.
