You’re 17, you’re a famous musician who tops the charts every time you release a new song, your fashion is impeccable, and then you interview your favorite musician – Billie Joe Armstrong – for Rolling Stone Magazine. Your name is also Billie Eilish.
Eilish is a young singer and musician who has released major hits over the past two years due to her unique sound and style of music. Armstrong is the lead singer of Green Day, which has been around since 1984 and has released pop-rock hits such as “Wake Me Up When September Ends” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”. According to Eilish, Green Day is the reason she started her music career and helped her find her own sound. âI can’t believe I’m in the room with the guy who was my (phone) wallpaper,â Eilish said of Armstrong.
In the interview, Eilish mainly focuses on the 1994 album Dookie because it’s his favorite outing of the band. But the interview goes deeper than just talking about the album – Eilish’s age is even more on display as she talks about “bad shows” and talks to her childhood hero. The age difference between Armstrong, 47, and Eilish, 17, underlines just how new the singer is to this world of intense fame. In response to talking about “bad shows,” Armstrong told Eilish,
âWhen you play so many shows, it’s just part of your day. You wake up and you are in a new place. Having an evening off for a show is basically like having a day off. Some days you are more embarrassed. Other days you walk the road.
Green Day is set to tour with Weezer in Spring 2020, shortly after the release of their new album. Father of all.
