Billy Bob Thorton ousted from Canada

Ever since Billy Bob Thorton insulted Canada on a Canadian radio show, the Canucks have had it in for him. So much so, that Billy and his band, The Boxmasters, have decided to cancel the concert tour. I for one, didn’t even know he was on tour. Seriously.

Billy Bob Thornton’s band has canceled the rest of its Canadian tour after the actor compared the country’s fans to mashed potatoes with no gravy in a testy interview that caused a sensation online.
The Boxmasters opened for Willie Nelson on Thursday in Toronto, where they reportedly were booed and met with catcalls of “Here comes the gravy.”
A note posted on Nelson’s Web site Friday said the Boxmasters were canceling the rest of their Canadian dates “due to one band member and several of the crew having the flu.”

What would Tom Petty do? Ask Billy Bob Thorton.

If you are Billy Bob Thorton, you are special. At least that’s what you would think if you were him. During an interview with Canadian radio subject around his band, The Boxmasters, he gave a slew of smug responses including, “would you ask Tom Petty that?” after he was asked who his influences were. Note to Billy, you aren’t Tom Petty. You never will be Tom Petty. Your band sucks. Just thought you should know. Does that about cover it?
