Story of the Fan that met Billie Joe in Broken Guitars shop - Green Day Chat - Green Day Community
My name is Adrian, and I'm Music became my passion, thanks to Green Day, I listen to since my early childhood. Billie Joe Armstrong is the person I was most inspired and influenced in this area. Meet has always been a while since I had to do.
This summerI went on a road trip in California with my family. We ended our trip in San Francisco, so stayed there. Knowing Oakland is the port of San Francisco, is located a few miles from this city, we decided to spend an afternoon. To visit the site and punk scenes of the east bay. We could finally move towards Oakland. To put a little in the mood, we put Green Day, background music in the car. In recent days, we had fun thinking meet Green Day, while we knew well that this dream was unlikely.
We found downtown Oakland, fully renovated and charming.
There were only a few miles to go to reach Berkley and Gilman Street, where we discovered the " Gilman Street". No scheduled concert, the hall has no interest.Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day
We could not go inside. No store is located around. She was not present during our visit. This is a very cute and cozy shop, perfect for bringing back memories of Oakland. Then we ate in the restaurant Mike Dirnt. We decided to stop later, on 40th street where 1,2,3,4 are! Both stores are located one opposite the other. The place was animated by the presence of shops and restaurants.
We saw the famous scene with a capacity of 40 people built by the group, In the documentary Cuatro. After purchasing a few items, we headed Broken Guitars. We crossed the street in the direction of the shop. I expected, passing the door step, meet Bill Schneider. It was indeed present. That's when my gaze was diverted by the presence of a silhouette that was not unknown to me Mr Armstrong, sitting, enjoying tacos.
Greatest Hits: God's Favorite Band
My legs began to tremble own. No word, no sound came, only a drop of sweat ran down my forehead. Bill and Billie Joe looked at me with a "poker face", not understanding, not my state. I stood quite remote from them, I do not want to be disrespectful. After I presented, they have announced that I was a fan of the group, he replied, "Oh great, I expected two seconds, I will not greet you with sauce on his hands".

Green Day has sold over 22 million records in the United States. Larry Livermore, owner of Lookout! Records, saw the band play an early show and signed them to his label.

That year, Green Day embarked on a nationwide tour with queercore band Pansy Division as its opening act. The band also joined the lineups of both the Lollapalooza festival and Woodstockwhere they started an infamous mud fight.
During the concert, a security guard mistook bassist Mike Dirnt for a stage-invading fan and punched out some of his teeth. The single went straight to number one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. Insomniac was a much darker and heavier response by the band, compared to the poppier, more melodic Dookie.
And Green Day are as good as this stuff gets. Though the album did not approach the success of Dookie, it still sold two million copies in the United States.
