Why is he an ass just because he does not like the band? Maybe he was not ask why by the interviewer. And what would he be jealous of?

Billie is entitled to his opinion. That said, I don't think Jon & the boys even really have to care what he thinks.

This omment is old old!!! I do believe it stems from a radio station concert in the 90's where Green Day were supposedly the headliners, and Bon Jovi was the act playing right before them in the lineup, and Jon and the band "stole" the show, so to speak, most of the audience left after Bon Jovi ad it infuriated Mr Armstrong, who had been braggingall day that his band was the biggest thing on the planet etc.........

It was at MSG a Radio Christmas show. People were chanting Bon Jovi, when GreenDay were performing and lots of the audience left after Bon Jovi which is when Green Day went on, LOL. I was leaving. Billy Joe, flipped out backstage over BJ stealing the show.

thats a classic story, I remember that. In fact a year later, Jon gave an interview with MTV and tabitha soren ask Jon about that, I don't remember the exact comment, but it was to the affect that it was silly for him to all mad like that, I wish I could remember exactly what Jon said.

Jon also told this story at Elements #2 listening party in July 2005. IIRC it was for Z100.

I have to say it is kind of sad that Billie Joe Armstrong feels this way cuz I am fan of Green Day to. In fact, I remember David Bryan mentioning in an interview for Have A Nice Day album, he says that Green Day's American Idiot record was his favorite, and that it was one of the best records out there. I'm sure Jon likes there music to. I have been a fan of there music since 94 and the Dookie record. You would think there would be at least some appreciation, not the BJA has to like Bon Jovi's music, but at least have an appreciation of the fact that these two bands are still as popular today as they were when both hit it big their first time. Oh well, I guess you can't make everyone happy or force them to like something that they don't.

Or maybe its cause bon jovi sucks. Im a professional musician and after analyzing both bands at a technical standpoint green day is better. Bon jovi is an old fart and if i ever see him ill make him cry the same way i made nickelback cry
