It isn't easy to upstage Billie Joe Armstrong, but a kid plucked from the audience did exactly that at the Patriot Center last night. Green Day was playing "Longview" about two-thirds of the way through the set, when Armstrong asked if anybody wanted to come up and sing the third verse. He spotted a kid in the crowd, asked him repeatedly if he really knew the lyrics, and told him to "get your ass up here." The kid took the mic and proceeded to belt out the rest of the song, much to be band's delight. The crowd went nuts. And when it was over, Armstrong gave the kid a guitar and thanked him for "what was pretty much the most memorable moment in my entire life."
