 Billie Joe Armstrong
Frontman for the band primarily responsible for resurrecting punk as a major label money-maker in the 1990s, Billie Joe Armstrong started off his life in the small, bayside town of Rodeo, the youngest of six siblings in a working-class family.
Exhaustion brought on by their hectic schedule, however, forced Armstrong and his bandmates to cancel a second world tour: by this time the singer had both a wife and a newborn son, and most of 1996 was spent with his family and out of the spotlight.
Concurrent with his involvement in Green Day, Armstrong has also participated in a number of other bands -- foremost amongst which is Pinhead Gunpowder, a long-enduring side project also involving memebers of Crimpshrine, Monsula and Fuel.
