The 2014 Rehab Facility Social Room Tour is looking better all the time.

Hi, I'm a Replacement.

Not to take anything away from Paul Westerberg, but Armstrong is an amazing songwriter and has a great voice. Has he produced some crap? Sure. Is he a bit of a mess as a human being? Sure. (I had tickets to see GD in '04, and the show was cancelled right before showtime because Armstrong "wasn't feeling well." It pissed me off, but it's not the first time a band has cancelled a show, and I survived.) I'd have loved to have seen the show that the oh-so-with-it submitter's dissing here.

But yeah, I know. . . . Billie Joe's a burned-out druggie, blah, blah, no-talent, blah, blah, blah, Cochella, blah, blah, rich spoiled hipsters, blah, blah, blah, bad music, too expensive, blah, blah, no bands that TRULY cool people like, blah, blah, blah. . . .

This is one of those oblique choices that could turn out good, or really, really bad.

This is Big Fun for the students at Armstrong High School.

So, it only took them like 25 years to replace Westerberg?

The other guys in the band should have really stuck it to Paul and invited Ryan Adams to join in instead.

Billie Joe is actually pretty talented subby, so I am not sure what you're upset about.

LlamaGirl: Billie Joe is actually pretty talented subby, so I am not sure what you're upset about.

And Westerberg was there. Onstage. He did what he could, being in pain, and Armstrong filled in the rest.
A good move if ya ask me.

"Paul Westerberg played most of the set sitting on a sofa, having suffered a back injury."

It's a biatch when you slip off the barstool.
