There is--and could only ever be--one Billy Bob Thornton: actor, musician, Academy Award-winning screenwriter, and accidental Hollywood badass. In The Billy Bob Tapes, he leads us into his Cave Full of Ghosts, spinning colorful tales of his modest (to say the least) Southern upbringing, his bizarre phobias (komoda dragons?), his life, his loves (including his marriage to fellow Oscar winner Angelina Jolie), and, of course, his movie career. Best of all, he's feeding these truly incredible stories and righteous philosophical rants through his close friend, Kinky Friedman--legendary country music star, bestselling author, would-be politician, and all-around bon vivant. Put these two iconoclasts together and you get a star's story that's actually an insightful pop culture manifesto--a hybrid offspring of Born Standing Up with Sh*t My Dad Says.

Great change from other stories of the stars, we know about the films, nice to learn about his other passions and learn some interesting things - plus Bad Sants 2 might be on the cards - Thurman Murman!!!! Any slight interest in the man you will enjoy this book...

Great light read- the man's a born storyteller, and has lived a rich and interesting life. Plus he's funny to boot.
