    10 QUESTIONS FOR BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG
    June 17, 2010

    What bands influenced you?Katelynn See, INDEPENDENCE, KY.
    A lot of Minneapolis bands like Hüsker Dü and the Replacements. After that, the Ramones, then the local punk-rock scene that we came from in Berkeley, Calif. There was this great compilation called Turn It Around! That was a pretty big record for me.

    [Laughs.] I definitely age. It's about trying to mentally keep yourself in a place where you're never resting on your laurels. That's the fountain of youth. It has nothing to do with the wrinkles on your face, how fat you get or if you get gray hair. It's your zest for life.
