Billie Joe Armstrong, Music Playing Kid

Here’s something I didn’t know. When Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day was little, he traveled around singing at retirement homes. Apparently he was liked well enough that when he was five years old, his music teachers helped convince an independent record label to put out one of his songs, Look for Love.

Tell me you’re not going to have that stuck in your head all day today.

The b-side of that record consists of a woman interviewing him about how much he loves singing, and also how he’s been learning a whole lot about Jesus and the bible in nursery school. In a roundabout way, I suppose one of those things ended up helping him out quite a bit with the other.
