Billie Joe Armstrong Opens Up About Substance Abuse

 

Green DayBillie Joe Armstrong recently spoke with Rolling Stone about his struggle with substance abuse and rehab. You can read an article excerpt after the jump.

“I couldn’t predict where I was going to end up at the end of the night,” he tells Rolling Stone senior writer David Fricke. “I’d wake up in a strange house on a couch. I wouldn’t remember how. It was a complete blackout.” He finally confronted his problem after the Vegas radio festival, where the frontman smashed his guitar onstage and shouted, “I’m not fucking Justin Bieber, you motherfuckers.”

“I remember tiny things,” Armstrong says of the Vegas incident. “The next morning, I woke up. I asked [my wife] Adrienne, ‘How bad was it?’ She said, ‘It’s bad.’ I called my manager. He said, ‘You’re getting on a plane, going back to Oakland and going into rehab immediately.’”
