Blind Items Revealed

March 15, 2014

This A list band made a recent surprise appearance. The supposedly sober singer of the band was anything but. Hopefully they are not planning on touring soon because he won't live through it.

Billie Joe Armstrong/Green Day

I <3 GD. This makes me sad.

TalksTooMuch said...

I hope he goes to actual rehab and actually stays. Addiction is a bear y'all

OneEyeCharlie said...

Quitting has got to be tough when you're surrounded by the shit.

sandybrook said...

too bad he's been a mess for awhile and melts down onstage too like at the I<3Radio concert.

Christopher Cruz said...

Green Day were AWESOME in the 90's.

TalksTooMuch said...

They were, Mr. Cruz. When I Come Around was practically and anthem. All of Dookie, actually

sandybrook said...

That's a big thing too--they and The Offspring were essentially punk bands--now both groups are in their 40s--too old for that now.

TalksTooMuch said...

Holy shite, sandy, I was just coming her to say that my dream concert would be The Offspring and Green Day. Get outta my head!

jack ducky said...

I still love green day and think they make great music. I hope he gets the help he needs though.

Christopher Cruz said...

That album ruled my high school!!! And Smash by The Offspring!!!

Lady Heisenberg said...

Will always love Green Day. And at least they wrote their own shit **cough cough Offspring cough cough**

penelope jane said...

I'm calling bullshit. I know one of their guitarists and he said he's been doing well being sober and employs sober coaches.

sandybrook said...

Offspring write their own songs--they just steal melodies.

TalksTooMuch said...

The Offspring only have the one song, played 40 different ways, gawd luv em. So, not grand larceny anyway

BeckyMae said...

Sobriety is hard y'all....

NaughtyNurse said...

I really hope he can get and keep his shit together. He is a really talented guy.

sandybrook said...

The Ramones were probably the Offspring's mentors for songwriting and melody making :)

bellaluna said...

True that. I quit drinking a year ago, and I don't even go down that aisle at the store.

Unknown said...

They actually got sued by a smaller band for stealing a song. The smaller band got a BIG payout.

Sherry said...

Sandyboo do not take The Ramones name in vain! Offspring are no where near their talent. Sad they never saw the fame they were deserving of.

MeanieRhysie said...

Sherry, amen. I've got The Ramones on right now!

sandybrook said...

I love The Ramones they grew up in my neighborhood and the Bell Brothers went to my HS

teresa crane said...

This makes me sad - Green Day was my life back in the day

Cecily said...

I never knew he was supposed to be sober. Last week, I listened to the entire Dookie album and I loved it just as much as I ever did. One of the best albums in rock history.

Countess Eden said...

Went to a GD show a few yrs back and the suite beside us had been rented out for a 9 year old boys bday party. First thing out of Billy's mouth was fuck! That mom flipped out the entire show. She was on pins and needles... He said every curse word there is. Those 9 yo boys were so excited! So funny!

Lady Heisenberg said...

I know. Offspring and FOB both stole from a buncha hardcore bands

Lady Heisenberg said...

Offspring's first couple albums were heavily ripped off from local OC bands, one in particular.. That's why their newer albums sounds so different from older shit they "wrote"

Lady Heisenberg said...

I truly hope hope you are right. I love me some BJ

Unknown said...

I meant green day got sued. By a Minneapolis band.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Oooooh goody! Thanks unknown, I'm gunna have a great time digging into that!

Unknown said...

It's one of those secrets around town that's not supposed to be talked about.

Brenda L said...

Maybe he can play more music with his son and keep his demons under better control.....

Lady Heisenberg said...

That's right! The story was that American idiot was written entirely within a couple days because the original album got stolen from the studio etc
D4 got the settlement from GD but Jawbreaker was also ripped off in the AI album. Thanks unknown

Unknown said...

No prob lady. Let's just say someone has a nice cabin in Minnesota now after the payout.

Lady Heisenberg said...

That gives me the warm and fuzzies. Everybody wins!

AJ said...

@Christopher Cruz.
That was huge my freshman year.

AIP said...

Oh no! I hope this isn't true.

One of my favourite concerts was them in Dublin's SFX back in '97. They were not prepared for the undercurrent of anarchy found in an Irish audience ;)

Sika said...

this breaks my heart, I knew he was on something when they played here in march :(
