AP: Green Day Cover Story

My fourth Alternative Press cover story this year! In-depth interviews with all three guys conducted in Orange County a few weeks ago. Their DIY beginnings, 65 million albums sold, 5 Grammys, American Idiot fatherhood and three new albums. In other words, there was plenty to talk about. More info HERE.
