How To Survive Rock’n’Roll! Green Day, Metallica, Johnny Marr and more share cautionary tales in the new issue of Q.

on October 16, 2016 - 1:42am

The December issue of Q is a How To Survive Rock’n’Roll special, with the tips of endurance headed up by returning punk veterans Green Day. On sale from Tuesday 18th October, Q hits the road with the trio to hear about the resurrection of Billie Joe Armstrong and how the singer put himself back together after his very public breakdown in 2012. “There was some sort of higher power saying, “Billie, you better look after your life.” It was time for me to take care of my addiction to drugs and alcohol,” Armstrong tells Andrew Perry.

Interview with Green Day’s Mike Dirnt – The Band, Music, Gear and More

on October 15, 2016 - 3:27am

Green Day is an American punk rock band formed in 1986 by vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt. For much of the group’s career, the band has been a trio with drummer Tré Cool.

Green Day has sold more than 75 million records worldwide and has won 5 Grammy awards. Recently I was fortunate enough to catch up Mike Dirnt for a quick interview in Hollywood, CA.

Let’s start from the very beginning, like all good stories. What first drew you to music as well as the bass?

As a kid, I was kind of raised on radio and I was always humming and thinking songs in my head.
