With the exciting news that Green Day will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Rolling Stone interviewed Billie Joe on the whole experience. We linked to the story yesterday, but wanted to highlight it again for anyone who might have skimmed over it.

The interview mainly goes through the band's past history with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, what the band is doing with their time off, and where they'll be heading in the future.

On the subject of how Billie Joe reacted to getting the news, he had this to say:
"I had to go for a walk, I wound up at this cafe and I sat down and my son met up with me. I told him and he was like, 'Oh my God. No way.' It just took some time to sink in. We're in incredible company and I'm still trying to make sense of this. It's just incredible."


As for what the plans are for Green Day going forward, Billie Joe says
"We have a lot of heavy stuff going on right now. Everyone needs to be with their families. We keep in touch with each other. If I was to say, "Hey man, let's make a record right now!" they'd be like, "Are you out of your fucking mind?" I realize that. It's good to have a little bit of distance from the creative process because you end up wanting to get back to it even more when the time is right.

RS: Are you thinking you might start writing or recording next year?
I think of next year as us kind of regrouping and getting together more. I want to make sure that everyone's head is in the right place and wants to start doing it again. I think this is a great time for us to reflect. With the Hall of Fame here, we can look back with gratitude and reflect with gratitude without feeling like it's some nostalgic trip.

We've always kept moving forward, no matter what. That's exhausting. Also, Mike's wife is just recovering from breast cancer. And [guitarist] Jason White [who was recently diagnosed with tonsil cancer] is going through the same battle right now. We need to be there for each other in a different way rather than standing next to each other and playing really loud."
