  • "After harrowing at club level since the start, they have got a completely unexpected global breakthrough in summer of 1994. Peter "Babs" Ahlqvist booked the band for Bergslagrocken Festival in Fagersta in May 1994. We had a cancellation and then they showed up as an option. And I liked them already. They have cost him 14,000 crowns. Peter begins to clear his throat when asked if he has any fun anecdotes from the visit. "Yes, that is... No, I can not tell. Come on now - it was a bit, er... Sex in the barn. One of the members was caught having sex with one of our festival crew members. Sympathetic and remarkably confident Billie Joe Armstrong interviewed me just before the concert. He was psyched and excited about the hype that was building up around Green Day."
