LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-APR 18, 2019…ON THIS DATE GREEN DAY WAS INDUCTED INTO THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME IN THEIR FIRST YEAR OF ELIGIBILITY AS PART OF THE CLASS OF 2015. THE REST OF THE CLASS INCLUDED LOU REED, STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN AND DOUBLE TROUBLE, AND JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS.
GREEN DAY WAS SPECTACULAR AT THE CEREMONY, WITH BILLY JOEL ELOQUENTLY STATING DURING HIS SPEECH:
“My record collection is sitting in this room.”
HOWEVER IT WAS BANDMATE TRES COOL WHO CAME UP WITH THE BEST LINE:
“I remember when we were sleeping on couches – I didn’t think we’d be where we are right now, right in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame…..I thought it would take another year or two.”
DEFINITELY WELL DESERVED HONOR AND MAKING THE BAY AREA PROUD. HERE’S THE GREEN DAY INDUCTION (PART 1)
