Look out Jian Ghomeshi. Billy Bob Thornton is speaking out on music once again, but this time it’s a little more loose.

Thornton last made headlines in the music world a few years back when he metaphorically put Canadian radio host Jian Ghomehsi over his lap and gave him a spanking for asking him questions about his acting career during an interview that was supposed to be about Thornton’s band the Boxmasters. Whether or not Ghomeshi was really that out of line has been debatable, but Thornton is talking music once again.

In a recent interview with TMZ, Thornton was ask to name who he thought the greatest band of all time is. His answer was pretty bizarre and arguably pretty off point.

“The Beatles don’t count because everybody says that…for me, my favourite band is the Allman Brothers.” Seriously. The Allman Brothers? What a choice.

Do you agree with Billy Bob that the Allman Brothers are the greatest band of all-time, over Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Pink Floyd? Let us know what you think of his pick in the comments section below.
