INSIDE MUSIC | BY FRANK DE BLASE | PAGE 12 | PHOTO PROVIDED It’s easy being Green A Green Day show is simply spectacular, but without too much emphasis on spectacle and fluff. Green Day just digs in and goes, plugs in and peels out. The band — singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, drummer Tre Cool, and guitarist Jason White — has re-defined, or at the very least dominated, pop/punk since it first came on the scene in the early 1990’s. There’s a pile of awards and thousands of fans in the band’s wake that attest to it all. The quartet has packed a lot into the band’s nearly 25-year history. It isn’t in Mike Dirnt’s nature to look in the rearview mirror. But when he does pause and get a glimpse of his band’s long history, he’s a bit stymied. “Wow,” Dirnt says. “Where’d the time go? And how did I get so old?” The band is back on tour to support its recent triple-album project, and will make a stop in Rochester on Monday, April 1.
