It was a very coherent speech he gave. After all----he stops the song they are playing and says---- I wanna play some new songs, turns around and sees 1 minute on the time left screen. They cut his stage time in half during his performance. I would have been pissed too and probably sounded off similarly. Here's the rub. Green Day has 3 albums releasing this fall. THREE. Rhymes with publicity.
