Billie Joe Armstrong on recording with Morrissey

In an interview promoting Green Day's new album "Father of All Motherfuckers"...



Article here... https://www.theguardian.com/music/2...knroll-helps-you-dance-through-the-apocalypse

Excerpt:

This year the band will turn 34. No punk band has made it this far. The Sex Pistols lasted three years, the Clash 10, the Ramones 22. Green Day are writing the blueprint while living it, so it is no surprise that they have sometimes made mistakes. Last year Armstrong duetted with Morrissey on his covers album California Son – a terrible look in the wake of Morrissey’s vocal support for far-right organisations and individuals.

“I wasn’t aware until the song came out,” says Armstrong. “We do the song, and he was very lovely, and then the song comes out and a lot of Brits were like: what the hell are you doing? I really did not have a clue … ” Bewitched by the singer’s status as an 80s indie godhead, he simply failed in his due diligence. Cool pipes up, giggling: “Hey, we’ve all got our Ted Nugents, right?” – a reference to the US rocker and gun enthusiast.

I think Steve Jones would have joined Morrissey on this record and been more appropriate.
I wonder if M asked him. I wish Morrissey could just do Jonesys Jukebox. Its in LA.
I'm burned by this Billy Jean. Not worthy.

“We wanted to try to bring people together. It’s become something of a far-out concept to love each other!”
says Tré Cool.

You could almost say love is on its way out.

Another busy morning for the resident lunatic...
The lunatic is on the grass.
Lunatic is correct.
Still remember him in Bradford, laughing out loud like a hyena. Week or two later he wouldn’t come to Ireland as he was too scared.

I don't trust that he wasn't aware. It's all a show apparently.

Well it's the guardian saying it's a terrible look, not Armstrong. Armstrong is "Quoted" saying -

“We do the song, and he was very lovely, and then the song comes out and a lot of Brits were like: what the hell are you doing? I really did not have a clue … ”

So basically he's aware people are upset he sang with Morrissey. So what? Doesn't really sound like he gives a shit. It's the band member "The Cool" who chimes in with the slur comparing Morrissey to Ted Nugent. What are the chances someone who calls himself "The Cool" is a tool?
Yet another crock of shit squeezed out by a paper that ironically is used to clean up said shit.

His name is Tre Cool, not The Cool. Can’t you read?

Well don't I feel like an idiot getting this tool's name incorrect when all along it was even more pretentious than I thought. Thanks for the correction. You're reaffirmed my point.

GAME OF DEATH.
Having read the Guardian for over 35 years, I can assure you that they didn't "make 'em up." Why is it so difficult for people like you to accept the fact that many people dislike Morrissey's espousal of a far-right political party?
you say it like that's a badge of honour,HAVING READ THE GUARDIAN FOR 35 YEARS,a newspaper which doesn't print lies doesn't exist and you know it.

Someone needs to inform The Guardian's corrections and clarifications editor that there is NEVER anything to correct or clarify.

And their spelling and grammar is impeccable.

And a hack's opinions are never used to distort quotes.
