Billie Joe and Adrienne, "Christian and Gloria," by Naomi Lir
Naomi Lir, a.k.a., BillieJoesEntourage, has created a nice “Christian and Gloria”-type wallpaper from a second photograph taken at the American Idiot opening, a reverse image of the one below of Adrienne and Billie, both of which show off Adrienne’s beautiful tattoos. You can download a large version of the above wallpaper here or by clicking on the image above. Check out more of Naomi’s work at her DeviantArt site as well.
I don’t post often about the wives or family members of Green Day. For one thing, the band is pretty private about their lives, and personally, it’s none of my business. I make an occasional exception for Adrienne Armstrong, however. From what I can tell, she is pretty neat and incredibly gorgeous, and it’s obvious that after 15 years of marriage, Billie and Adrienne are in love. And it’s a beautiful thing in this day and age of temporary rock star marriages.
People find this blog, according to my search engine stats, by looking for variations of “Adrienne and Billie” moreso than any other aspect of Green Day. I have only posted two photographs of them together, a really hot one of them for their anniversary this year (hey, what, it was published!), and the one below at American Idiot in Berkeley. These two posts are the most consistent photographs or subject that people stumble upon.

As you may know, Verizon sponsored the North American leg of Green Day’s tour that kicked off back in July of 2009. Verizon produced the numerous soundchecks that occurred during the tour (I believe the soundchecks were great events for fans but I am not quite sure what the band thought of them), as well as free t-shirts, food, games, cool photographs outside of the venues that were flashed onto the big boards above the stadiums pre-show, and concert footage at both the VCast Verizon GD site and Facebook.
The Green Day VCast site is now offering you the chance to re-mix a few songs from 21st Century Breakdown. The best remix wins some awesome gifts: both a guitar and a drum kit signed by Billie or Tre.
Go on over and remix your own and take a listen to the entry by Lauren Banjo. Lauren attended one of the soundchecks during the tour, and actually got Billie Joe to sing “Misery” from Warning during the soundcheck by providing him with the lyrics. It was epic.
You can read about my take on the somewhat sacred vibe of the soundcheck (or rehearsal), for the performer, here.
