Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong is going way back with his latest Instagram post—all the way back to when he was a budding 5-year-old musician! Check out Billie Joe's totally nostalgic studio pic down below.
As hardcore Green Day fans are aware, Armstrong was cutting tracks from a very early age: At just 5, the future pop-punk superstar recorded the tune “Look For Love” for a Bay Area label called Fiat Records.
The woman Billie Joe cites as the inspiration for his childhood singing career is identified in the photo as Mrs. Fiataroni. Check out a 5-year-old Billie with Fiataroni and an unidentified studio engineer in the cute pic:
In the pic's caption, Armstrong reveals that the very same studio where he tracked “Look For Love” as a 5-year-old musical prodigy is where Green Day would eventually end up recording their hit album Dookie.
Bille Joe says: “sooo. here's a fun story. the amazing woman in this photo is Mrs Fiataroni. she basically taught me how to sing. this is a picture of us in 1977 at fantasy studios in Berkeley ca. I was 5 years old. I recorded a record called 'Look for Love'. 16 years later Green Day recorded Dookie in the same studio. (dude on the right was the engineer)“
