Billy Bob Thornton

The GREATEST BAND

of All Time Is ...

... the Beatles. Duh.

BUT ... Billy Bob Thornton says if he HAD to name the greatest band of all time -- but couldn't pick the Fab 4 -- he knows exactly which group he would pick.

Hint: BBT's (second) favorite band was huuuge in the '70s ... but never scored a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 list. They did have a #2 ... with the word "Man" in the title.

Second Hint: The group was founded (and named after) two brothers.

Now guess ... and then watch the video.

For Billy Bob the worst band of all time is the wedding band.

Poor Billy Bob. Ever since he gave that interview on that Canadian talk show, his career has come to a complete standstill (look it up-its the fist video you see of him on youtube). He came across as a complete azzhole, full of himself and willing to throw his other bandmates (in his horrible band the boxmasters...ever heard of them? me neither) under the bus just to make a point. Go back to washing dishes billy.

I'll never know why people say that the beatles were the greatest band of all time. They were a boy band, one of the first.

Asking Billy Bob Thorton who he thinks is the greatest band of all time is sort of like asking Pamela Anderson who she thinks is the greatest actor. It really means nothing.

Is anything on earth more uncomfortable than listening to photographers trying to ask questions?
