Green Day Learned From Singer's Meltdown
He disintegrated in rage during a festival set in September 2012, shouting at organisers, smashing his guitar and throwing his mic away. Days later the band announced he'd gone to rehab suffering from addiction issues, and added it was partly to do with their hectic work schedule.
