    PUNK MOGUL LARRY LIVERMORE RECALLS MEETING A TEEN BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG IN NEW MEMOIR
    March 05, 2013

    In 1988, Lookout! Records co-founder Larry Livermore walked into 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California and caught his first glimpse of Green Day. Billie Joe Armstrong was just 16 at the time and they were still playing under the name Sweet Children, but Livermore saw the potential and he added them to his label.
