Stjärnan kastades av flyget- för att hans byxor hängde
Green Days sångare Billie Joe Armstrong blev avkastad från flygplanet. Varför? Jo hans, byxor hängde för lågt.
– ”Vad i helvete? Det är inget skämt”, twittrade stjärnan om incidenten.

Sångaren i Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrongs flygresa tog snabbt en oväntad vändning när stjärnan inte uppfyllde planets klädkod. Eftersom hans byxor hängde för lågt blev han helt sonika avkastad från planet. Sångaren skriver själv om händelsen på Twitter:
”Blev precis avkastad av från en Southwest-flight för att mina byxor hängde för lågt! Vad i helvete? Inget skämt!”

Sommarnytt

Hej alla Green Day Lovers! Nu har vi på greendaylover fått sommarlov och därför önskar vi er den bästa.

Nu när sommaren dragit igång kommer det inte bli lika mycket regelbunden uppdatering, men även på grund av att Green Day tar det lite lugnare. Men vi ska försöka ha en dator i närheten så mycket som möjligt. Hoppas ni fortsätter att kika in! Kram — Beatrice (Webmaster)

Billies son?

Coolt, att han liksom också gör musik?

‘Billie Joe Armstrong’s son follows in father’s footsteps with Emily’s Army

Here’s some news that clocks it at a staggering SST velocity: Only yesterday, it seems, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong was an angry young green-haired man, writing about cute girls he saw — but was too shy to address — in the high school library.

Now, he’s a father who just produced the upcoming debut from Emily’s Army, an Oakland proto-punk quartet that features his own now-teenage son, Joey Armstrong, on drums. The album is due out June 14.

Pretty freaky, right?

Ranging in ages from 15 to 17, the lineup also includes brothers Max and Cole Becker, on bass/vocals and guitar/vocals, respectively, and guitarist Travis Neumann. They took their moniker from the their 5-year-old cousin Emily, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis in 1998, and they’ve even set up a fundraising organization for her under the same name.

On May 21, they’ll be playing a cystic fibrosis benefit called Great Stride on the Huntington Beach Pier. Once the “Man, I’m getting old” shock wears off, it’s great to hear yet another young generation flying tthe snot-nosed punk rock banner, in bratty anthems like “F-Word” and “Some Call ’Em Girls.” And believe it or not, Emily’s Army has already been touring up and down the West Coast for two whole years.’

Detta låter freaky awesome! Efter att ha läst andra böcker om bandet, men som inte haft kontakt med Green Day, blir detta ännu bättre/intressantare.

RÖSTA på Billie Joe för sitt deltagande som St. Jimmy i American Idiot.

Details Magazine: Billie Joe

Details Magazine har en intervju med Billie Joe Armstrong i deras Maj 2011 upplaga! Den handlar bla. om musikalen, hans barn, deras uppkommande platta och mycket mer.

DETAILS: You recently finished your second stint performing in the Broadway production of American Idiot. Any plans to take the show on the road?
Billie Joe Armstrong: We’d take it anywhere that will have us. There’s also talk of a film, with Dustin Lance Black potentially writing. We’d probably do the soundtrack, and I’d play a part if it’s good. But then, the Who’s Tommy was kind of a nightmare.

DETAILS: You’ve said that, prior to recording the album American Idiot, you came to New York and did a lot of partying. Did you think about that while playing the drug-pushing character St. Jimmy?
Billie Joe Armstrong: That’s more the main character, Johnny—going from being a big fish in a small pond to swimming with sharks. I had a tendency in my past to get caught up in partying too much or making bad decisions. Stealing a limo from David Letterman during the Insomniac tour—I got into a little bit of trouble. In 2003, I ended up in jail with a DUI, and I definitely regret that.

DETAILS: You have two sons. Have you had any ”Do as I say, not as I did” moments?
Billie Joe Armstrong: I was the youngest of six, no father, so it was total chaos. I was exposed to drugs and sex early on but had no one to educate me on it. There’s an honesty in our family—my kids and I are able to talk about things without me putting the fear of God into them.

DETAILS: Has being a father changed you?
Billie Joe Armstrong: It’s hard. I’ve been playing rock and roll since I was 16 years old, and now I have a 16-year-old. There’s no better meter for knowing your age than seeing a real 16-year-old. People always think they’re so young at heart. I see my son, and I’m like, ”Aw, fuck, I feel old.”

DETAILS: There was a huge ”punk or not punk” debate when Green Day first broke through in the early nineties. You just released your 11th album, the live Awesome as F**k. Does being punk still matter to you?
Billie Joe Armstrong: On a certain level, but that’s always been a love-hate thing with me. And for the first time in my life, I realize how shit on we were by our own community. I get so mad that when I run into these people on the street, they’re lucky I don’t have a fucking knife in my boot. The only thing we ever did was realize our potential and push it. I did get nostalgic for the old days at one point, but now? No fucking way.

DETAILS: That album title, again, is Awesome As F**k. Apparently you don’t care about selling records at Wal-Mart.
Billie Joe Armstrong: The title came from when we went to Lollapalooza in 1992, when the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ice Cube were on the bill. Mike [Dirnt] was holding up a sign that said ”Ice Cube: Bad as Fuck.” Then at all of our live shows kids starting holding up signs saying, ”Awesome as Fuck.” It was a tribute to them.
