Billie Joe Armstrong, leader of the East Bay pop-punk outfit Green Day, is set to open Broken Guitars in the storefront located at 423 40th St. in Oakland. His business partner, Bill Schneider, a longtime Green Day associate and former bandmate of Armstrong's in Pinhead Gunpowder, said that the grand opening is slated for April 3rd.
Schneider previously ran Univibe, an instrument shop located at the intersection of Alcatraz and Adeline, until it closed in 2001, its stock assimilated by Berkeley's Starving Musician. Schneider and Armstrong have ties to the block. 1-2-3-4 Go!
