I am going to have to find this article. All I read is the one with Mike discussing the addiction but I really want to read Billie Joe's perspective too. I feel so bad I didn't know about this because it is such an isolating disease but I am relieved to know that he has people in his life that care about him. I hope he has learned a lot in recovery and I can't wait to find out more.

I got my Rolling Stone mag. in the mail yesterday and I was amazed how honest and open your story is.  Sobriety is something that is a battle everyday but with all the right people around you can succeed.  Thank god for your manager and Adrienne!  We all have orientations that may not be healthy but when those things affect the people around you that is when the re-evaluation begins.  I have had people around me suffer from addictions and when the people you love can't be helped we feel helpless and that can be disheartening and very unfair. Your a smart man to see the big picture.  I make a pledge that all of us idiot members should buy Billie Joe all the root beer in the world!  Health and happiness is key to longevity and without that life can be short.  Don't be that person!!  I love Green Day music and look forward to new albums and love listening to your music loud!!!!  I plan on living a long life so as a fan Billie remember that.   And for anybody who hasn't read it you need to!

I'm so glad you're doing better, Billie. And don't worry about us being let down...we'll stick by this band till the very end. But that's just it, Green Day will live on forever in all our hearts. That's how I see it. ✗✗

Try on, sometimes is the only way to get rare things or things you just can't have in your city!!!

Thanx for the tip! I actually checked earlier today, and saw someone selling the current issue, so perhaps I'll get lucky a few days after this one is out :-)
