This isn't NEW or anything, it's from last year - but I never blogged it, so hopefully it's new to a lot of you!
Here's Billie Joe Armstrong CRUSHING a cover of 'I Think We're Alone Now' by Tiffany with his sons, Jakob and Joey! How cool is that?
Armstrong's son Joey, the drummer in this video, is actually in a pretty successful pop punk band called SWMRS - check em out....
Kinda hard to believe the kids are as old as they are considering BJA's youthful energy - there's a great comment on that video that says "in a year the kids will be older than Billie!"
Honestly, though - I just really enjoy seeing musicians who LOVE playing music having a good time, and that's constantly provided by Billie Joe and all his covers....
….so I figured this would serve as a nice Friday blog.
Side Note: all of Green Day are also a lot more talented musicians than they get credit for; I mean, Ringo Starr chose them as his backing band when he went into the 'Rock N Roll Hall of Fame' a few years ago for a reason….
Billie Joe, Mike Dirnt, and Tre Cool are all incredibly versatile talents who can play just about anything - and if you've eve seen them live, you know that they WILL play just about anything!
I've been fortunate enough to see Green Day live twice, and had tickets to complete the hat trick last Summer - but we all know how that went. Fuckin COVID. They'll be on my MUST SEE live post-pandemic for sure, though and they should be on yours as well; they'll play for three straight hours and tear your face off. Hopefully they announce tour dates soon!
