Billie Joe Armstrong's Birthday

TDIM - Billie Joe Armstrong's Birthday - 17th Feb
“Punk is not just the sound, the music. Punk is a lifestyle”.

It is Billie Joe Armstrong’s birthday today! He is best known as the lead vocalist and founder of punk rock band, Green Day. He is also a guitarist and vocalist for the punk rock band ‘Pinhead Gunpowder’ and provides lead vocals for Green Day's side projects Foxboro Hot Tubs and The Network.

 

He was born and raised in California. Armstrong developed an interest in music at a young age, and recorded his first song at the age of five. He met Mike Dirnt while attending elementary school and the two instantly bonded over their mutual interest in music, forming the band Sweet Children when the two were 15 years old. The band changed its name to Green Day, and would later achieve massive commercial success. Armstrong has also pursued musical projects outside of Green Day's work, including numerous collaborations with other musicians.

 

Currently the singer co-owns the record label Adeline Records, with his wife Adrienne and skateboarder Jim Thiebaud, with the collaboration of Green Day's guitarist Jason White and more recently Green Day's manager Pat Magnarella!

 

Here are the top 5 songs by Green Day!

We wish this artiste a Very Happy Birthday!
