This past Sunday night, Green Day was playing a concert at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, Illinois. They apparently saw a fan holding up a sign that said, “I can play every song on Dookie,” so they called him on stage and let him play guitar on “When I Come Around.” To say that Thomas Bulvan was up for the challenge would be a tremendous understatement.
That was badass. Bulvan was shredding that song like he’s been in the band for his whole life. Stage presence for days too with those dynamite jumps, kicks, and spin moves. He even threw in a stage dive for good measure at the end. Kid’s got pizzazz oozing out of his pores.
I can’t imagine being called on stage like that, as I’m 100% certain I’d f*ck up even the simplest task. Way too much pressure. Billie Joe Armstrong could ask me to play “Hot Cross Buns” on the recorder and I’d piss my pants and scamper off stage.
