When Green Day almost quit musicMay 17th, 2009 - 1:11 am ICT by IANS
London, May 16 (IANS) Members of American rock band Green Day were so disappointed with the reception to their sixth full length album “Warning” (2000) that they considered splitting up.
The “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” hitmakers’s album “Warning” could reach only number four on the US Billboard chart and, despite being a hit with critics, wasn’t received well by buyers, reports contactmusic.com.
The band was so deflated after the release that they questioned whether they would continue making music, according to band member Billie Jo Armstrong.
“Back then we had to question ourselves deeper than we ever had, investigate how we felt about each other, how we got on each other’s nerves. We had to step it up about 10 notches. The interesting thing about that time was we were playing live shows better than we ever had before. But we never had a monumental record,” he said.
