John Roecker
Radio station WZON AM 620 in Bangor, Maine recently had a chat with John Roecker, director of the upcoming Heart Like a Hand Grenade documentary.

The radio station discussed several things with the film maker such as the inspiration for the film, his story behind how it all came together, and his punk rock music background.

John also touched on an eventual international and physical release of Heart Like a Hand Grenade, saying "yes" to both. Also, when asked if the release of this film is part of a build-up to a new Green Day album, John replies with "That's another thing... [fans are] going to have to wait [and see]." There are some hints hidden in his voice.

Take a listen to the interview below from WZON AM 620.
