Short bio: 

Billie Joe Armstrong was born on February 17, 1972 in Oakland, CA. He attended Hillcrest Elementary School in Rodeo, where a teacher encouraged him to record the song "Look for Love" when he was 5-years-old. He met Mike Dirnt while attending elementary school, and the two instantly bonded over their mutual interest in music, forming the band Sweet Children when the two were 15 years old. The band changed its name to Green Day, and would later achieve massive commercial success. Armstrong has also pursued musical projects outside of Green Day's work, including numerous collaborations with other musicians.

He also co-owns the record label Adeline Records, with his wife Adrienne and skateboarder Jim Thiebaud, with the collaboration of Green Day's guitarist Jason White and more recently Green Day's manager Pat Magnarella.

Hi Billie,
You're my favourite person ever. Like in the history of the freaking universe. My friend feels the same way but right now he's going through some hard times. Today he told me he's going to kill himself and I think if he got some encouragement from his favourite singer he might reconsider.

Just give him some hope.

Okay, as strange as it might seem, there are millions of Green Day fans in India, and I LOVE YOU SOOOOO MUCH!! and so do many other people, the CD's aren't available and to even order them online, you have to beg the person then give some ID's and signatures...it's just kinda sad that you are oblivious to your fans in India...anyways even if I you don't do anything about it...(I know you've heard it 1000 times) but I AM your biggest fan. And I love you and your music and I'm not just saying it.
Thanks for reading so long,
Love you lots
Aryaa
