- Vanity Fair: What do you mean when you say you are a "conservative parent"?
- Billie Joe Armstrong: I want to know what my kids do. And I want to have an open dialogue with them. I became a father when I was very young so there is not a big generation gap between us. Both Trè and I became fathers for the first time when we were 23, Mike when he was about 24. Therefore we can talk about everything with them; music, boys and girls as the case may be, alcohol, drugs. The only thing I ask my kids is, "don't lie to me".'
“We’re best friends, almost like brothers. Mike’s children have always called me uncle Billie. And this family feeling is heard on the album, I think.”
- Billie Joe Armstrong on getting back to the roots of the band and how it brought them closer than ever
