  • Ian Holman: "On this day 20 years ago (Monday 6th June 1994) I saw Green Day and Shed Seven at London Astoria 2. At the time I didn't really know a lot about Green Day. They had only just released their first UK single that day. I only went to this gig to see Shed Seven (for the third time). Anyway as it turns out Green Day were excellent and soon became pretty big worldwide."
  • Larry Livermore: "I didn't see the guys again for a few months. I caught up with them in London, where they played a sold-out show at the Astoria. I hung out with them backstage for a while, but the celebrities and TV lights were getting on my nerves, so I started walking home along the Bayswater Road. A bus pulled up alongside me and someone yelled my name. TrĂ© was hanging out the window, shouting, 'What are you doing out there, doofus? Let's go party!' I jumped in the bus and he showed me the video they'd just finished for their next single, Basket Case. Late that night, we ended up in a bar in Maida Vale. Green Day's manager had just flown over from the States, and he was waving a copy of the new Billboard magazine. Reprise had taken out a full-page ad that said simply 'Dookie Is Gold', in honour of the album having sold its first 500,000 copies."
