FACES: Ian Thinks Green Day Sucks
When the Faces were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, keyboardist Ian McLagan had to be subjected to watching Green Day perform in honor of Guns N’ Roses, who were also inducted. This proved to be torturous for him.
McLagan says, “I don’t really get it. It’s too young for me. It feels like kids making a lot of noise. I had a migraine that day, it was a bad one. I got it about two hours before the show. I’d ordered a meal, it was an hour late, it got to me just before I was supposed to leave. I was angry and I had a migraine. I get there, I’m 15 feet from the front of the stage, right in the middle, second table. Green Day come on. If I had a gun, they’d all be dead.”
McLagan will release a new album, United States, on Tuesday.
