Jeff Matika moved to Little Rock in 1991. "I kind of thought this was going to be a stepping stone," he said recently. "I'd come here for a couple of years and figure out where I wanted to go."

"I had decided, I'm going to play music forever," he said, "but as a casual thing." Then he got a call from Green Day.
