I met Green Day at a meet and greet in 2010. Mike signed my cd and said nothing, Billie signed my cd and passed it on, the Tre signed it and said "I like your shirt" (I was wearing my Foxboro Hottubs one) and I said "thanks, I was trying to be different" and Billie looked up from whatever he was signing and said " different is good" and I said "thanks" and grabbed my stuff and ran out of the store. Then I started crying a little, so I put on my sunglasses and continued out of the mall. It was intense is all, and I'm an emotional person, I'm just glad I didn't lose it in front of them. I was prefectly happy just getting something signed and be on my way, but that I conversed with them... it was awesome.

I met Mike at the Frustrators. He was a massive goofball that kept yelling at me and pushed me around a couple of times. He can't draw/write or read music, and he is a snarky asshole :D I loved it. I also told him he was the inspiration for everything I want to be in my life and he said "awww" and initiated a hug. He also told me a great story about Belinda Carlisle and her boobs, judged me for being dirty and flying to the US on a credit card, and initiated the goodbye hug when I told him I had to fly home to Aus the next day. Aaand he took a photo of my tattoo on his phone. He was perfect :') and I have no need to meet the others because nothing could top that weekend.

Everything i've always hoped he would be...

Seriously. I really just want to say hi and have them say hi back and not be giant pompous dicks. I don't think they are but i just need that confirmation. Though i'm not sure what i would do if they were jerks... it would be like losing 20 years of my life, and everything that i like and i do.

Well I can't speak for Billie and Tre (except the couple of times that I've spoken to them that didn't really count, like bumping into them in an airport and being like "HI!"), but Mike is everything you could hope for haha. I asked him to draw a bass clef behind my ear and he drew a dot and goes "It's a beauty spot!" and then left the building and went home. it was amazing haha, little asshole.

I have never met them, praying I hopefully will someday, but I know if I ever did see them randomly on the street I would probably be too nervous to say anything and then be super pissed later on that I didn't say anything. It's happened to me with bands before. If I do ever get the chance to meet them I am afraid I'll pass out from excitement!

I'd love to meet Green Day. It's the first thing on my Bucket List. So far I've only met them in my dreams :ermm: . Haha I wouldn't want to freak out a scream and jump on them though. I would try and play it cool. Mike did wave to my sisters, friend and I. We saw him down by the tour buses and we were at the top walking back to line and we saw Mike we all screamed Mike, Mike, Mike then he turned around help up his bass and waved. Haha made our day, so much cooler than running into Hunter from AFI moments after that. I wanna meet themso bad!

Have you ever met Billie, Mike, Tré or Jason?

Or do you have any autographs?

This summer I met Mike and Tré in Mönchengladbach, Germany ; It was awesome!

I got an autograph form Mike:

When I was 10 I met an old man who said he was Billie Joe's dad in a playground. We played together for hours.

 

I found out years later that his dad was dead  :mellow:

I've never met them, and would like to to, but at the same time I wouldn't. I am a really socially awkward individual, even mores so in unfamiliar unnerving situations, who can barely cross a room with knocking something over and I dread to think of the embarrassing things I could end up saying or doing if I met any one or all of them.

I'm the same, so I have the same kind of would love to, but wouldn't want to at the same time thing. I highly doubt this would be the case with anyone from the band, but I have that fear of meeting someone you really admire and they act dismissive of you or something, and that maybe making you feeling alienated after about the music.

I know! I don't think I could ever enjoy the music or work of someone again fully if I had met them and they acted really coldly towards me...but I'm quite an insecure person.

 Unfortunately I think it happens quite a lot because a lot of famous people can be kind of arrogant and dismissive of fans, which is understandable in some ways because they deal with it every day. From what I've heard of other people who've met the band their accounts have always been really positive and warm :)

billie gave me a thumb up during the vienna concert. he was right infront of me and i was yelling the song as loud as i could but i guess the fact that i had a small camera (gopro like but not that awsome quality :( ) on my head was the trigger for his "real life like"   i should make a .gif of that part haha

but i dont think that counts as "meet"  he also walked by me in new york right bevor the AI Musical...

I would love to meet them. Are you kidding? It would be one of my dreams. Like honestly, if I met all three of them at once I wouldn't mind if I died the next day lol. No but seriously I think if I met them my face would just turn bright red and be like CAN I HAVE A HUG?! I would really like to meet Adrienne too, she seems so awesome! The next GD concert I go to I MUST GET MEET AND GREET.
