Green Day News
|July 21, 2010:|
Ok, Megan is actually
trying to find her own news out by researching through various sources for recent Green Day news! So, just last Friday, the
cast of American Idiot the Musical performed live on Good Morning America. Here's a link of them performing 'Good Riddance':
Good Morning America clip. Also, Green Day are definitely about
to start recording their next album sometime in the near future (hopefully it won't take another five years for this record
to come out ... such a long wait, though it was worth it). Currently, the band is looking around for record producers; both
Rob Cavallo and Butch Vig are possibilities. That's all the news I've got that isn't totally outdated! Super.
-Well, since I'm so late with news on this site, I may as well re-cap all major Green Day news from the past year and a half?
~In 2008, Green Day's side project, the Foxboro Hot Tubs first came out and produced an album called Stop,
Drop and Roll!.
~In May 2009, Green Day released their eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown. Know
Your Enemy, 21 Guns, 21st Century Breakdown, and Last of the American Girls were all made hit singles.
The album is set up much like American Idiot and tells the story of both Christian and Gloria; the album is divided into
~Green Day won a grammy at the 2010 Grammy's for 'Best Rock Album of the Year'
~Green Day hit
Broadway when musical director Michael Mayer (who also directed the Tony Award Winning Spring Awakening) asked them if he
could bring their album American Idiot to the stage. So far, the musical has been a huge hit, after it first premiered
at St. James Theatre on April 20, 2010.
~Rock Band created 'Green Day: Rock Band' in June, 2010, so Green Day finally
has a video game!
I suck at these uber late updates, so please excuse my tardiness! ... not like anyone consistently
comes to this site, of course.
My thoughts : I really need to buy a Rock Band guitar so I can actually play Green Day Rock Band! I've got the
game, alright, but I never got around to buying any of the instruments. Way to go, me. I had a pretty decent paycheck
last week, though, so maybe some of it can go to that.
