Billy Bob and Buffalo Talk About Boxmasters

Posted: Apr 30, 2008

I dreamed I was a teenage Boxmaster...

Billy Bob Thornton's ultra cool hillbilly-mod band The Boxmasters will release their debut album, a double disc set, on June 10th, just prior to embarking on their highly anticipated summer tour. The CD features one disc full of all original tunes, along with a disc full of "Thorntonized" covers liike Mott The Hoople's "Original Mixed Up Kid" and The Beatles' "I Wanna Hold Your Hand."

I decided it was a good time to touch base with our friend Billy Bob (aka: "Bud") to get the skinny on the band, the album, and exactly what a "boxmaster" is.

Keep it Real. Keep it Southern. (Like an Arkansas Razorback!)


PS: When I was waiting on Billy Bob's call today, the phone rang and it was my daughter Hannah calling from Hawaii. I blew her off because the interview was pending. When I called her back, she told me that she and her fiance had gotten married this afternoon. I just wanted to give a big shout out to my Hannah and her J.C. Congratulations, honey.

Wow, what a great interview. Well done. I can't wait to see their show. Speaking of great, there's a new addition to Nashville that is worth checking out. Canadian award-winning Trevor Finlay. www.trevorfinlay.com (Country Blues/Rock) He's in Nashville for a while, writing for his next album. Check him out.

I love the site! Just wanted to let you know that there is a cool little band out there called Mozley Rose from Richmond, VA that play some great country and southern-rock jams. They have been touring for the past few years slowly gaining more and more momentum. These are not only great guys and down to earth people, but they kick some serious butt with their guitar licks and great harmonies. Check em out if you can! Again, love the site and all the interviews. http://www.mozelyrose.com/ PS - they also sponsor their own race car at the Southside Speedway in Richmond VA, pretty cool if ya ask me!

Buff. I can't wait to read the interview. I will absorb it after work tomorrow. I downloaded some of the Boxmasters from Dell and love their sound. Billy Bob is a crazy man.
