Today, July 2nd, is the fifteenth wedding anniversary of Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong and his beautiful wife, Adrienne. Happy Anniversary!
The obvious comparisons of other rock stars and celebrities abound around these two… how many celebrities can you name these days that have made it to the 6-month mark in marriage, let alone fifteen years? Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward are the only ones that I can think of, and sadly, Paul Newman passed away last year. Sure, there are others, but Billie Joe and Adrienne smash stereotypes found constantly in music, fame, and punk circles. They had to work hard at their successful marriage, and while sometimes these things fail, they made it. The example of their love is for me just another reason why I love Green Day.
There’s a nice article about Adrienne Armstrong, a powerhouse of a woman in her own right, from the Free Press of Mankato, MN, where she went to college and where the couple met. It’s a nice piece and reading it, you can tell why Billie Joe fell completely in love with her. Ah, romance… it’s great that it’s not completely dead these days.
As to the other members of GD, Tré won’t stay in a relationship to save his life is in a relationship, but let’s face it, he’s crazy, and Mike is currently with his second third wife, the beautiful Brittney Cade (they just had a baby, Brixton).
I hope the Armstrongs have a great celebration of their anniversary! Mazel tov!
BTW, the new tour starts tomorrow, July 3rd in Seattle. I see them in Albany on July 25th and then again at Madison Square Garden on July 27th. I cannot wait.
