That photo looks late for Dookie. I’ve seen others from that time with Rob Cavallo and Billie had the dreadlocks still.

Yeah, I've seen those too. It's from a documentary about Dookie made around that time though so I can't see that being incorrect. Maybe the dreads are just squashed by the headphones.

Idk, they could have just thrown a random studio photo in there.

Don't remember ever seeing this one before. Billie recording Dookie at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, where he also recorded Look For Love.

‘Fantasy Studios definitely had that Seventies coke-y vibe, mahogany and strange dead wood around the place. We would go into the vaults and see all of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s master tapes. But I felt we belonged there. Our first album cost $700 to make. Kerplunk! was like $1200. “Let’s record these as fast as we can – because we don’t have a choice.” This time, I learned how to dial in good sounds, get the best guitar tones. I was able to take a little time doing vocals. I loved that experience.’ (source)

Is this definitely Dookie?  The pics I've seen of them recording it show him with dreads.  He looks more Nimrod era here.

Edit: Whoops, I didn't see the other responses.  I agree with @pacejunkie punk.

I agree, that really doesn't look like Dookie era Billie to me, docs are quite often wrong and mix stuff up I would say.

I am so in love with this picture right now! Maybe it's because I just had a dream involving this version of Billie, but damn! I've always been absolutely floored by this look. ❤️ The shades, the hair, the clothes, the eyes, the pose - everything is just perfect!

And just look into these eyes! It's like you can see straight into his soul. :wub:

Not convinced that’s Billie, am I the only one?
