Local rocker celebrates happy birthday — Green Day style

on March 24, 2017 - 9:36am

David Taggart is still buzzing about his birthday.

The local rocker spent his 26th getting dragged up on Montreal’s Bell Centre stage by his rock n’ roll idol, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, and belting out a verse in front of a raucous crowd before stage-diving headlong into a sea of waiting arms.

Billie Joe Armstrong believes in the transformative power of rock' n' roll.

We know this because he informed the sold-out, St. Patrick's Day crowd at the DCU Center in Worcester as he was reeling from the impact of his band Green Day's two-and-a-half hour set, that rock' n' roll can change the world.

Lying on the stage, swept away in the euphoria of The Isley Brother's "Shout," which the band had somehow turned into the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction" and the crowd-fueled chorus of The Beatles' "Hey Jude," Armstrong had found the unity he had been seeking from the outset.
