"I couldn't predict where I was going to end up at the end of the night," said Armstrong, 41.
After a live performance spiraled out of control at a iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas last year (which included Billie Joe Armstrong breaking his guitar and ranting that he was no Justin Bieber), the Green Day singer decided to check into Rehab.
In the new issue of Rolling Stone, Armstrong admits to years of alcohol and prescription drug abuse. “I couldn’t predict where I was going to end up at the end of the night,” said Armstrong, 41. “I’d wake up in a strange house on a couch. I wouldn’t remember how. It was a complete blackout.”
Following a cancelation of their 2012 tour dates for the ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tre! album trilogy in October, Armstrong released a statement in December thanking fans for their support while he was recovering from substance abuse.
The rock ‘n’ roll singer declared, “Dear friends … I just want to thank you for all the love you’ve show for the past few months,” Armstrong wrote. “Believe me, it hasn’t gone unnoticed and I’m eternally grateful to have such an amazing set of friends and family. I’m getting better every day. So now, without further ado, the show must go on. We can’t wait to get on the road and live out loud!”
The new Rolling Stones issue hits newsstands on Friday.
