Argh!! The first thing I noticed in this article was that people have fckd up Billie Joe's name again. Morons. But only obsessive fans will know and care about that. Anyway, I appriciate that the band knows their job is music and aren't going to go about like a lot of other musicians who will remain nameless, who believe that it's their right to do both. Choice yes, Right no. Anyway, shame in this case cause Green Day rule and it would be great to see them in a different light. After all it is their thoughts going into it so seeing how they express it would have been a good show.
