I don't have any questions right now, but that must have been pretty fucking awesome.

Wow! I remember Greenday.net!!! I used to go there all the time and read the articles... Is the site still current? Sorry I haven't been there for a while.

It goes without saying, but I'd love to know more about your communications with Adrienne and BJ; are they about how you expected, or nothing like their public personas? 80 just seems like she'd be lovely :wub:

I no longer run it - sold it to a musicfanclubs.org for $5,000 many years ago, they still have it and it sucks terribly now.

How did you get involved with doing the site to begin with?

Adrienne was great to deal with, she made the site what it was by slipping me all the unreleased info. She once asked if there was anything I wanted and I said the Sweet Children EP and she sent me that, several rare posters and guitar picks out of Billie's studio. Periodically she'd ask me to send questions for Billie and he'd write back. Before Nimrod was released it was noted that the lyrics for Platypus wouldn't be included with the cd, I asked why and he said "because of my potty mouth" and typed out the lyrics for the whole song, this was prior to it being released. He also faxed me the letter to a fan that you may have seen floating around before.

That's so cool, I always assumed the same person was still running greenday.net as had been running it then but I guess not. How did they first reach out to you, did they contact you through the site? Must have been mental

I'm going to ask what everyone else is thinking.

Did anyone ever send you n00dz?

Or maybe it was just me wondering that...

No, she got in touch with me - I told her to fuck off - seriously. I figured it was some idiot messing around with me. She had someone for, Reprise verify to me it was her, so understandably I felt like a complete moron. She was great to deal with

Thats a good story to tell grandkids haha! So when you sold the website, did they get the connections too? Or did they just fizzle out between everyone?

No they got nothing but the site and domain - I started up GreenDayWeb.com after that and everyone followed me over there but due to the popularity I couldn't afford the costs on my own as a college student so the site died.

I had backstage passes 3 times (Edgefest, Warped Tour and a small club show in Toronto) . At Edgefest I couldn't find them, at Warped Tour I found Billie and got his autograph but I didn't tell him who I was cause I got nervous haha, Adrienne gave me shit after and said he really wanted to meet me. At the Toronto show they destroyed the stage and staff wouldn't allow anyone backstage after.

Obviously you must have been a huge fan of the band back then. Are you still a fan of their newest material?
