More details about the path that led to Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s onstage meltdown in Las Vegas last September, and his subsequent trip to rehab, have been revealed now that his full interview with Rolling Stone hit the stands on Friday (March 1st). Asked if there were any warning signs before the debacle in Vegas at which he smashed his guitar and screamed at promoters during a festival, Armstrong said, “I’m sitting in my room (on a European tour), and I get a text from my manager: ‘Come on down . . . ‘ I went down there, he was sitting there, and he goes, ‘We’re getting on a plane. We’re canceling the rest of this tour, and you’re going into rehab.’”

Armstrong added, “I was like, ‘What? What the f*** are you talking about? I’m not going to do that . . . As soon as we get home, when we’re done with the press and this stuff, after (the Vegas show), the week following I’ll go to rehab. But I can’t cancel any of this s*** now.’ It turned out I was a week ahead of schedule.”
