Green Day's Armstrong Heading North For Christmas

Green Day calls the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area home, but singer-songwriter Billie Joe Armstrong is going to head north for the holidays.

“I think I’m going to go to Minnesota and experience some cold weather and hang out with my in-laws.”

Armstrong shared some Christmas memories. His favorite, he said, was “probably when I got a guitar for Christmas, [that] was the most memorable one.” Asked if he knew he’d find the instrument under the tree. “No, I didn’t really know. I got this guitar when I was 8 years old. It’s an old blue Fernandez Stratocaster, and I’ve had it ever since.”

Green Day is in the studio writing and recording demos of songs for the band’s next studio album. The band’s last was 2000’s Warning.
