I just heard from one of my friends that Billie Joe Armstrong has cancer, and has 1 - 3 years to live! Can anyone confirm/unconfirm?

I also don't want this to turn into a flaming session. Billie Joe may not have been an awesomely amazing guitarist, but has influenced and entertained many people.

I hope this is true, this could be the best news I've read in a while.

I really don't believe this is true. Can someone close this thread before it turns into a Green Day hate fest?

By the way, TS, you're late to this party. This was a rumour that went around probably about 3 or 4 years ago..

I actually rather like Green Day. And Billy was the only "punk" I actually had any respect for.

Kindly GTFO. I asked a question, and wanted an answer. And asked for no flaming. Also, no stupidity.

+1 Maybe there would be some news on their website, although it's a very personal thing mind you.

There has been no official statement by Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day, their management or The Fox Borough Hot Tubs stating that Billie Joe Armstrong has cancer and is going to die in 1-3 years. Rest assured, what you heard was a rumor and nothing more.
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

What? A shitty shitty pop/punk artist with no musical talent is going to die of an even less interesting condition!!!

I really don't care.

From the Greenday FAQ

Does Billie Joe have throat cancer? The answer is, "No, don't be stupid"

Just an old rumour.
