BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG / GREEN DAY – ‘AMERICAN IDIOT’
24″ x 20″ Limited Edition of only 50 prints
This was taken in Dublin to promote the yet to be released ‘American Idiot’ album. I had to shoot a front cover for one of the guitar magazines and the idea of Billie Joe Armstrong posing with a guitar seemed so cheesey and definetely not at all punk. I wanted Billie to look completely uninterested on the cover and I had the idea to get Billy chewing on bubble gum and stretching it towards the lens to avoid him having to hold the guitar at all. I expected this to be a difficult shoot but like all good ideas the simplest work the best and Billie was so easy and co-operative throughout the session.
