**In the full video, there are 2 guitar players who REALLY mess up, and Billie Joe gives a guitar away. Crazy...

October, 2005, Live in Albuquerque, NM. Green Day likes to pick people from the crowd to play their instruments for this Operation Ivy cover, Knowledge. I lucked out because I managed to get Mike's attention.

After 2 failed attempts to find a capable guitar player, they picked my guitar-player friend, Joel, who I briefly played music with years before. This experience reunited us and led to the formation of the band we play in today called Flood The Sun:


They picked two people before the guitarist you see in the video. The first one was a girl, but she couldn't play the guitar well enough, neither could the second kid. Billie Joe sent her to the side of the stage and later gave the guitar to her saying, "This is for you. Now practice, Dammit!".

I had to edit the video down because it was too long for youtube back in when I first uploaded it. The drummer and I were on stage 10-15 minutes.
