Headlining band, “Jane’s Addiction” was scheduled to perform but when a sudden undisclosed family emergency occurred to drummer, Stephen Perkins. Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool of the Grammy-winning band, “Green Day” was able to step-in just in time for the show. Below is a response tweet from “Jane’s Addiction” guitarist, Dave Navarro:
On a lighter note; adorned with balloons behind his drum kit, Green Day’s drummer Tre Cool was serenaded “Happy Birthday” by the entire contingent of Live 105 listeners, while Armstrong wishes him a happy “23rd” birthday.
