Green Day Article-book thingy

Um... has everybody seen this?

So, reading this article I have to point out a few things-

1. El Rey? What is this El Rey? They mean the Wiltern, right? And...

2. Matthew Fox was there? Zach Braff?? I was at this show, and I did not even glimpse these people. Though I doubt that were squished up in the pit like area with us, the place isn't that big, y'know? Though it's possible I just didn't notice cause HELLO Green Day was right there.

3. What do they mean "finally really made it into the city"? Green Day's done made it. It's made. And packed. And wrapped. And tied up with a pretty pink ribbon.

But actually it's a cool article. Lots of biography details, some of which I didn't even know. Bits of interviews with Billie's siblings (!) And a couple cool pictures. Check it out.

"Jim took one look at him and said, 'He looks like he really belongs in show business. Why don't you take him in the studio and see if he can sing.'" Hmmmm, I wonder?

I kind of assumed they meant the Wiltern there, too, when I saw that.

I keep waiting to see if this is an authorized biography or not, but it looks really intriguing and I can't wait to pick it up. The latest issue of AP has some snippets of it, too - and yes, very cool new to me pics.

And can I just say how nice it is to 'see' you? You've been missed, man. Hope everything's cool in your world. =)

Awww, thank'ee. Sorry I haven't been around. I miss you guys.

I too was wondering if this biography is authorized- though if the guy real talked to family members it must be at least tacitly approved.

While I tend to shy away from spending my non-existent funds on things not music or concert related, I figure I should check out some books. I don't know about the quality of this one, but it's bound to be up to date. One point in it's favor.

Pretty cool excerpt, isn't it. I've got the book, (and the 2007 GD calender) in my cart at Amazon, just waiting for me to hit BUY. Looks like a great book for the Green Day obsessed...not that there's anybody like that around here.

Hope school is going well for you.

Green Day obsessed?? Who's Green Day obsessed?

2007 GD calendar, huh...? I could use me one of those. I think it's time for a not-so-subtle Christmas gift hint to the family.

Ah man it's awesome that you find these things. Billie Joe pendulum clock? The possibilities are endless! Making shit you don't need into stuff you MUST HAVE by putting Billie's face on it... BRILLIANT!

Hmmm... maybe they were there. It was just so extremely squishy, I don't see them rubbing up against all those people. Though come to think of it they could have been in the press balcony -Billie made all the press stand up and join in, cause he's amazing like that. Ah fun times. I need more concerts!
