Idiot Club has posted news on guitar picks which are straight from the studio. They stated that they are able to be in your (our) possession but we don't know how and when we will be able to get em'. (Idiot Club Members Only).

'Like what you see? Green Day just sent Idiot Club a massive amount of guitar picks from the studio featuring new art. Stay tuned for details how you can get yours exclusively here at Idiot Club http://www.greendaycommunity.org/public/... Aren't you glad you joined??'


The artwork on the picks are the two album arts from Uno and Dos, and the middle set of pics show the licence plate labeled with 'FK*TIME'. Maybe these picks were used in the making of the Trilogy as they were 'Straight from the Studio'. Well, those are my thoughts, tell me yours below! (Sorry mods if this has already been posted or has to be posted elsewhere) ://

Sweeeeeet.

Some of those picks look like they have wear and tear, so it's pretty likely they're used alright.

Shame I'm not a member though...

They look like unopened packages. I'm sorry but I doubt that they have actually been used. :(

The Idiot club has really picked up over the last few months. I actually like the things they are doing now. I still wouldn't bother with the forum there but the exclusive content and competitions have actually been good :)

I hope we get some of these (one of each?) with the Dos shipment of the ultimate box set. No use in just sending a CD, they have to send us free stuff too!

If these actually came "from the studio" that would be completely awesome! I would probably make one into like a pick necklace :) I fucking love pick necklaces :lol:

These are the same as GD were using on tour recently. At a gig, before or afterwards, politely and discretely ask a roadie or someone connected to the band. That is how my children got their GD souvenirs (picks and drumsticks).

how do you find a roadie and know its one?

So you want my secrets ? :happy: A lot of it is observation, try to work out who is venue staff and who are the GD staff. Engage the GD staff on a personal level (try to talk about something non GD specific). I know my age and demeanour give me an advantage. So here is how we got the drumsticks:

21CB tour (with son). After the event we walked to the side of the stage where there were no fans (avoid other fans when treasure hunting) and asked someone whether they were with the band, make up some conversation (eg I think you have the best job in the world but it must be hard work ... or something like that), then just ask; could you get my son a drumstick as a souvenir ? He disappeared for 5 minutes and returned with one and apologised for taking so long.

SBE secret show in London (with daughter). as above, after the show we went up to the barrier, I picked someone who I knew was not venue staff and just said a few words (are you with the band, you guys do such a good job, etc) and again politely asked for a drumstick and he came back with two, one for my daughter and another lucky fan got the other one.

So; be polite and respectful (I often start with 'excuse me, Sir'), take an interest in them, and ask for a souvenir as a last request. If you get a no, just say ok I understand (that same person may find you again later - that is how we got some picks). Expect nothing, hope for something.
