Ok, I looked for topics on this, because I have always been curious about meeting Green Day, but all I could find were things about what you would do to meet Green Day, or what fears you would face to meet Green Day, so I thought it might be nice for both those of us have not met Green Day to hear the stories straight from the horses mouth on what the guys were like, where you met them, etc. , and for those of you who have met them to reminisce and revisit that time place :)

So, have you ever met Green Day, what were they like and are you glad you met them?

For those of us who haven't, would you like to meet them? Why/ why not?


Personally, I would honestly love to meet them, or just see them in the street just to say, hey I love your music, even something simple like that. :happy:

I'm good with keeping my cool around famous people, because I know quite a few, but I might freak out for a second and then catch my cool. :P

I'd love to meet them, or just Mike. :D I was talking to this guy in a class I have the other day and he says: I look like Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day. me: no, you don't at all actually... Him: I met them, Billie was all right,the bass player was quiet, and I think what ever the drummer's name is is gay. :ermm: I hate hearing stories like that... taking it for granted just bugs me, with any famous person with fans for that matter.

I use the term "met" loosely, but I guess I could say I sorta have... :lol:
Mike outside a Foxboro show and him telling us a dirty joke (loooollllll), and Billie really briefly during those AI talkbacks.
And there have been times where I said hi and waved to Tre and Jason Freese and they do it back, but that's like nothing hah.
I don't really count any of them, I want to be able to legitimately meet them and talk to them one day.

I met billie once at an autograph signing. It wasn't really like MEETING THEM. it was like standing in front of him while he wrote his name on a piece of paper. Lame. But still kind of neat i guess.

Considering the way i started sweating balls before i met Joey at an EA show i am pretty sure i would make a fool of myself meeting green day :) (seriously- i am a 30 year old woman meeting a 16 year old kid! what is wrong with me! i switched deodorant brands after that day! it was ridiculous.)

I just want to meet them to know if they are nice. I've met a lot of musicians, and a lot of bands i listen to, and i feel priviledged to have had those experiences (also, it comes from listening to crappy punk bands no one's ever heard of). But- this one band... that shall remain unnamed (for the time being)... who are vaguely popular and on the radio (especially in the late '90's)... were TOTAL FUCKING JERKS... and it was such a huge disappointment. I really couldn't believe it and it fucking hurt my feelings, y'know? So i just want to meet Green Day just to make sure they're not total dickbags. That's all.

(i've heard they are pretty nice and normal. Joey was the sweetest most polite kid ever, if that is any reflection on his parents. I only bugged him for a second because there were a bunch of fangirls fangirling out on him and i didn't want to be annoying, but i wanted to say hi.)

Billie threw toilet paper at me and laughed when I put it in my pocket on a show.

It only counts if he wiped his arse with it before throwing.

I met Billie Joe for the first time in Dublin in 2005 - well, when I say meet, it was more of an 'incident' in which I screamed, dashed across a stream of traffic, ran around him in a circle and managed to blurt out a rather incoherent "HAI BILLYYYYYY!!!!1111! in his face. It was magical.

And then, well, I got on stage to sing Longview which was more of a significant experience than my whole entire life. And Billie Joe taught me how to stage dive.

And most recently, I got his autograph and we got a group photo in New York during the AI musical trip. That was so amazing. He just wandered out every time, and every time I was like like "Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhh"

Never met Mike orTre, had interactions with them on stage alright, but never formally 'met' them.

You can sort of sat I've met them. I got to go on stage with them back in 2010. It was so amazing and so weird seeing the concert from another perspective, the band's perspective. Billie gave me his wristband and also gave me one of his picks. I remenber I couldn't see his eyes because his hair was actually so fluffy that it blockded the sun.
I also got to meet Billie when he did his St. Jimmy run on Broadway in February, he was so nice and down to earth, talking to the fans and all.
I also got a picture with Adrienne and met some of the cast.
Best days of my life. Nothing tops it at all.

Depends how you define 'meeting', haha..! I've definitely had lots of crazy moments of concert interaction, most of them with Billie :P

But yeah, I've met Mike, as in talked to him. It was in a coffee shop the day before their latest show in Oslo; me and a friend went up to him and even though I was freaking out on the inside I somehow managed to keep cool on the outside, and we chatted for a couple of minutes, while he got his coffee and my friend bought some ice cream. Since there weren't any other people there who knew him I didn't want to make a fuss, so I didn't ask for a picture or an autograph or anything, and I definitely haven't regretted that at all. He seemed a little apprehensive at first, but relaxed when he realized we weren't gonna scream at him lol, and he was really really nice to us, even though he said he had just woken up and so this was before his morning coffee. XD We just talked about the show the following day, and how the tour had gone so far, and in the end he handed me and my friend a guitar pick each before we said goodbye and left. Aww, it's been a while since I thought about this - thanks for making me relive it! :wub:

I'm really glad that my first (and so far last) time talking to them was with Mike! I really don't know if I could handle talking to Billie, and Tré just scares me, so... :lol:

You're the guy who interviewed JR from Less Than Jake at Warped and told him that he wasn't in the band in 2001. Haha! That was funny :lol:

i've met tre, mike, and jason freese. whenever i met tre it was the day before one of their shows in nashville and we were walking around downtown, waiting for a light at the crosswalk and when we looked across the street tre was just standing there with jason f and his wife...i'm pretty sure we were in total shock. we didn't know what to do and then we lost track of them, but happened to run into them in a gift shop like an hour later. they were really cool even though i'm pretty sure i've never been so nervous in my entire life, tre was funny and kept playing with all the random toys that were in there and jason talked about how they were just out enjoying the first day off theyd had in awhile. later on that day we were walking down a different street and when i looked up tre was looking at us out of a van window at a stoplight and before i even had a chance to do anything he waved at us and then they drove off. i just thought it was really cool that he remembered us from earlier that day!

on that same trip we ran into mike waiting for his food in a bbq restraunt. i was with a group of people and i didn't actually say anything to him because i was so nervous but he talked to some of the other people i was with and he was really sweet, he said he didn't want to take pictures because if he took one he'd have to get one with everyone and he told us to keep each other safe in the pit.
