'Bon Jovi Were The Worst Band We Ever Toured With', Say Green Day

Punk rock icons Green Day have toured all over the world in their 25 year career, and have shared the stage with many a band - big or small, famous or local. But, if you were to ask the band and it’s frontman Billie Joe Armstrong who the ‘worst’ band they’d toured with was, you may not expect to hear Bon Jovi as the answer...

But, it is the ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ singers who have been named as Armstrong’s least favourite tour companions, while its Swedish rockers The Hives who were named as the best band they’ve had the privilege of playing alongside with.

Armstrong was asked the question by Kerrang!, and replied: “The best [band we've shared a stage with] is probably The Hives, they're a great live band. [As for the worst] Oh boy, I have to go with Bon Jovi.”

The magazine then asked Armstrong what the funniest rumour he’d heard about himself was, which he said was hearing that he’d died - saying: “I was in Los Angeles recording 'American Idiot', and I got a call from my wife freaking out. It was just internet stuff gone wild.”

You’ll probably be happy to know that Armstrong is still alive and well, and will be touring the world with Green Day for the next year. You can catch him performing in London’s Emirates Stadium on June 1st 2013 - if you need tickets, check below and find yours through Stereoboard.

Green Day UK & Ireland Tour Dates are as follows:

Sat June 1st 2013 - Emirates Stadium, London

“History will remember us as the apathetic generation who negligently ushered in a dreadful dystopian age that may or may not come to be known as ‘The Rise of the Arseclowns’.” With his unique take on Brexit and Donald Trump matching his group’s equally idiosyncratic and often hilarious new record, we’d like to say welcome back Sir Justin of Hawkins: may conformity and political correctness never darken your wonderfully unhinged door.
Weezer - Pacific Daydream (Album Review)
Mon 30 Oct 2017
Weezer. Oh no. Last year’s ‘White Album’ restored faith in California’s most annoyingly inconsistent sons. After 15 years spent chipping away at their legacy, this guitar-toting, Beach Boys-worshiping band decided to take what made them brilliant in the first place and boot it into 2016. It was home to ‘50s melodies, alt-rock fuzz and painfully awkward words spewing from Rivers Cuomo’s lyric sheet. It was a Weezer record fans could finally be proud of.

Bryan Adams - Ultimate (Album Review)
Tue 14 Nov 2017
If every picture paints a visual story, every ‘best of’ album tells a musical one. For example, there’s the feeling any Bryan Adams collection called ‘Ultimate’ shouldn’t include tracks recorded after the early ‘90s. Although the truth isn’t quite that straightforward, it’s hard to disagree when listening to the Canadian rocker’s latest career-spanning compilation.
