In a new String Theory episode from Ernie Ball they sat down with guitar legend Steve Vai. In the video he briefly talks about how much he likes Billie Joe's guitar playing, and describes his sound as a giant orchestra.

"People say someone like Kurt Cobain wasn't a great guitar player. Well, was he a virtuoso? You can argue not. Was he effective? Try to play like Kurt Cobain. It's not that easy. Or Billie Joe Armstrong. Did you ever see him play? It's visceral; every note and every chord pops. It sounds like a giant orchestra. That's hard to do"
