Still panicky about Joaquin Phoenix's bearded retirement plan? Well, fear not, because hot on his heels comes Billy Bob Thornton, much-loved actor and full-time drummer. Appearing with his band, The Boxmasters, on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio, he was prickly, at best.
When host Jian Ghomeshi implied that music was a "hobby", Thornton proceeded to debunk the interview, mumbling non sequitirs and refusing to play ball: "How long ago did the band form?" "I don't what you mean by that". He even started talking about the magazine Famous Monsters of Movieland, which he read as a child. "What does that have to do with music?" "Music? No, it was a monster magazine."
Having made 8 albums himself, the 53 year old reacted badly to a reference to his Oscar-winning movie career, which Ghomeshi defended as being "just context". The group proceeded to perform an instrumental number without Billy Bob playing.
