As you see to your right, Green Day is in this month's Alternative Press. The article talks about the re-release of 1039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Kerplunk!. Click here to read the article in full size. But that's not all. Here's another snippet from the magazine's Overheard section:
Live Freaky! Die Freaky! director/writer John Roecker just can't say no. Seems every punk who's anyone wants to do a voice in the stop-animation horror flick he's doing with producer and Rancid honcho Tim Armstrong. So, when Good Charlotte's Joel Madden overheard Roecker discussing the film, well, another name was added to the cast of characters. "I was at an after-party for Good Charlotte, and Benji [Madden] and I were discussing his role in the movie," Roecker tells us. "Joel overheard us and wanted to know why he wasn't involved in the project. So I told him, of course, there is a role for him- I lied - and went home and split Benji's character in two so Joel could be in it." Also newly added to the film is Kelly Osborne, who plays the eco-hating Hollywood starlet Sharon (as in Tate, not Osborne), who becomes the victim of the Family. The Family, of course is that of Charles Manson, played by Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong. "The character is a complete bitch," Roecker says of Osbourne's role, "whihc is complete opposite of Kelly. She's such a sweetheart- and a beauty, to boot." Jeordie White (the artist formaly known as Twiggy Ramirez) and Siouxsie Sioux are also new additions to the cast, which alrady features everyone in Rancid and Transplants, Fat Mike [NOFX], Mike Dirnt [Green Day], John Doe [X], Warren Fitzgerald [Vandals] and Josh Freese [Vandals, A Perfect Circle, Stripsearch], Davey Havok [AFI], and just too many more to list.
