I'm sure it will make a rather nice amount of money?

Oh. THAT must by why Warner isn't fooling with it, it doesn't matter to them lol They don't see it as a threat...

Though truly I think it's awesome smile.gif I figured they'd do something like this with AI eventually, it's got too great of a story there not to.

as much as I cringe to even think about AI being turned into a play I know if it was playing near me I would still go see it. and what the hell is warner smoking that they won't let GD release HLAHG, but will approve of this play?

Yeah... On one hand I love AI and I think this could be cool. On the other hand, it did come out in 04 and it seems like maybe they should just leave it as the awesome cd that it is. I think that making it a musical would be almost.... overdoing it? confused.gif

I agree a hundred percent.

I mean, I first read that article and laughed. HARD.
This sounds like a joke. I wasn't that big a fan of the American Idiot Movie but a MUSICAL??
I don't want it to ruin the album, we really don't need that to happen.

And in that article, Billie didn't even sound that confident. He thought it didn't make a lot of sense but he still liked it.
I dunno....

and if Warner can let THIS happen, why can't HLAHG happen?
I'm sure a bloody musical about the former album is 10x more attention stealing than a documentary about it. blink.gif

Hahahahaha! This brings to my mind the interview where Billie said there'd be an AI musical "over my dead body" and laughed at the very idea.

Hahaha - "...a bit more fruity than the Clash..."

laugh.gif Oh Billie, I love you.

Can't say I'm a fan of musicals myself. I am a fan of Green Day documentaries though....... Kind of wees all over the idea that they wouldn't want HLAHG out because it'd distract from the new album.

I agree with you COMPLETELY.
Another thing I loved about American Idiot was how Billie made it so anyone can interpret what they wanted about the storyline, whereas with this musical and the dialouge would make the story seem more concrete.
I guess I'm pretty nuetral about this idea.
I'll hold my judgements about it for now until I know more about it I guess.

I know ... that was my first thought when I started reading the article. So, I wonder what the REAL reason is...

Well, I suppose HLAG is documenting AI - the musical is expanding on the album itself.
