This book tells the story of how three young men made themselves into one of the most popular bands in the world, and how their distinctive sound has come to influence a whole new generation of guitar groups and define a musical genre. One of the world's greatest exponents of punk rock, Green Day have spent more than twenty-five years taking their blistering punk rock around the world; in doing so they have sold an incredible 65 million albums.
This book draws upon the memories of a host of band associates, including Larry Livermore, the founder of Lookout Records and former band mate of Tre Cool, who was an important figure during the band's early days, and John Lucasey, the owner of Studio 880 where the band recorded their classic 'American Idiot' album, who provides the background to that best selling record. Also featured is a track by track analysis of every official Green Day release to 'Bullet in a Bible'.
This completely independent critical review leaves no stone unturned as it explores the Green Day legend. This is the essential companion for every Green Day fan on the planet.
