My latest iPad sketch. There is something about Green Day that just comforts me. Their music is definitely not what hard core punk fans would categorize as punk, but for pop music it has a great energy and attitude. I’ve been a fan for a long time and with the release of their new albums “Uno” and “Dos” I find myself going back through their catalog. And it is good.
I got to see them live during the 21st Century Breakdown tour in Edmonton and it was one of the best shows I’ve been to. Billy Joe is an amazing front man. The audience at the show was pretty young. I’m sure many weren’t even alive when “Dookie” came out.
Sometimes moments like that make me feel old and I wonder if I should let my music tastes mature. Then I remember Billy Joe and I are the same age so if he can rage and snarl like an angry teenager why can’t I? Boo ya!
