Billie Joe... although I can't say I'm not extremely disappointed in you, my heart goes out to you. From the first line of the opening song, something clearly was wrong. I would like to say I'm sorry for whatever happened to you, and I know the crowd's lack of reaction plus getting cut short (although now apparently that's not true?) made things way worse.
But Billie... you were clearly drinking... a LOT. That was definitely your worst performance ever. If that was the first time I saw you live, I'd never see you again. I'm embarrassed as a fan, because I don't want people thinking THAT was the band I was into. I want them knowing the band I'm into was the band that played Irving Plaza last week.
Please know that I truly hope everything is okay, but if nothing did happen before your set, and you got that drunk before a performance just because, well... you're a freaking idiot. You're not only a husband to an amazing wife and a father to two very talented young boys, but you're an idol and an inspiration to millions of fans around the world. People look up to you.
I know people make mistakes, but you're really scaring me. I need you around as long as possible.
Please get better soon.
Your crazy, tie-dye wearing fan,
