Green Day singer to work on new musical?
Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong wants to write a new musical.
The singer and guitarist with the 'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams' group worked with his bandmates - Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool - extensively on transposing their 2006 album 'American Idiot' to a stage show on New York's Broadway, and said he'd really like the opportunity to work on another.
He told the New York Times: "I think I'd be interested in the future of really getting into writing specifically for a show, that's something I'd really love to do."
Billie Joe, 38, added he feels his skills as a writer suit the stage, adding: "The kind of music that I like is very immediate and very catchy, and you identify with it quickly, and I try to write that way. And in musical theatre it's the same thing - you identify with the songs immediately. The good ones anyway."
The 'American Idiot' musical has run from April 2010 to present and been hailed a success, picking up a six accolades including two Tony Awards last year, and enjoying reasonable ticket sales.Posted on 11 Jan 2011 16:15 to category : Music News
