Overview

Formed in California's East Bay in 1987 by a 15-year-old guitar player named Billie Joe Armstrong and his bass-playing friend Mike Dirnt (later joined by drummer Tre Cool), Green Day has risen from the Bay Area's underground rock scene to become one the world's most popular bands. Lauded for bringing punk rock to the masses, Green Day's remarkable rise from teenage garage band to multi-platinum artists is documented here for the first time to coincide with the band's 25th anniversary. Author and frequent Guitar World contributor Alan di Perna, who has interviewed Green Day's three members several times, offers readers and fans a complete band history, from their formation and first gigs in Berkeley, California,  and signing to the Lookout! label through their highs and lows, eight studio releases (including the opening salvo 39/Smooth, the door-opening Dookie, the less well-received Warning, and more), the critically acclaimed Broadway show American Idiot, and their latest recording and film efforts. Di Perna's revealing text is accompanied by more than 300 visuals, including concert and candid off-stage photography, gig posters and handbills, 7-inch picture sleeves, rare vinyl, backstage passes, and more, all presented in a stunningly designed package.
