Green Day Uno

Green Day. Uno. Coming 9/25/12.

I like the street art look to Green Day’s new trio of album covers, cleverly titled Uno, Dos, Tre.

That is all.

Picture it:  The first day of March, 2011.  I was on my way to have a delicious New York bagel with some friends when the person standing in line ahead of me was Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day!  I debated talking to him as he was with his family and then I remembered that on a previous encounter with the rock god, I took a picture with him and he was so mobbed, the picture came out pretty bad.  Billie Joe, once again, was extremely nice and he happily obliged to take a photo with me.  As he was with his family, I did not gush to him about how awesome I think Green Day are and how I think it’s really a great thing that someone who is as big of a star as he is is very cool to fans – so I am saying it now.  Thanks again Billie Joe!  (and for those wondering, the bagel was nowhere near as great as taking a photo with Billie Joe).

Happy Birthday, Billie Joe Armstrong

American Idiot by Green Day

Happy birthday to Green Day’s lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. I met the singer the day before my birthday last year and he was really nice.  He was mobbed by screaming girls, but he still took the time to sign autographs and chat with fans.  He’s no American Idiot!  Happy birthday Billie Joe!

Admittedly not the greatest picture, but when I encountered Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day after he gave a talk about “American Idiot” on Broadway, he was mobbed!  It was really cool of him to sign autographs for the multitudes of screaming girls that were dying to meet him.  In addition to taking this photo with me, he also autographed 4 of my precious Green Day CDs (“Dookie,” “Bullet In A Bible,” “American Idiot” and “21st Century Breakdown”).  Thanks again Billie Joe!  Some of you C-listers should take a lesson from people such as Billie Joe.  The guy can sell out stadiums across the world and he still takes the time to be nice to fans!  Now that’s a class act!  Here’s a brief video I took of Billie Joe and Michael Mayer (director of “American Idiot”) talking about the project.  I risked life and limb to bring you a brief clip, so I hope you enjoy it! The first question was “do you have any regrets?”

On September 19, 2010, Billie Joe Armstrong (of Green Day) and Michael Mayer (who directed “American Idiot” on Broadway) spoke about the project at the 92 Y Tribeca in New York.  The conversation was very interesting as Billie Joe touched on everything from meeting his fellow mates in Green Day to which character he’d want to play if he were starring in the musical.  (He offered an “I don’t know” or “the drummer” as his answer).  Billie Joe talked about having no regrets for any of the personal lyrics he’s offered in his career, as well as speaking about being a father to two teenage sons and he spoke lovingly about his wife, whom he’s been with since he was in his late teens. (“I’m just attached to that chick,” he said.)  He also mentioned that he is open to writing another musical in the future and his advice to budding musicians is just to be the best you can and to just go for it.  I was never the biggest Green Day fan, but after seeing them live last year, I fell in love.  At that show, Billie Joe brought fans up on stage to play guitar and sing which are experiences those people will probably never get over.  After hearing him talk, you can tell what a cool guy Billie Joe is and I am in love even more!  I met Billie Joe Armstrong after his talk and even though he was mobbed by screaming girls, he signed a bunch of autographs (including my “American Idiot,” “Dookie” and “Bullet in A Bible” and “21st Century Breakdown” cds and took a picture with me.  See a picture of my encounter and a brief video of the discussion coming soon.  Please be patient.  I am but one mere mortal with experiences of epic proportions.
