Former Faces member Ian McLagan has spoken out about his hatred for Green Day and his new album, United States, which will be released on June 17.
In a recent interview with Salon, McLagan talks about how he wasn't even thinking about politics when he named his forthcoming album.
"It's not anything about United States. It just seemed to be a great title," he shrugged. "It's also an anagram of nudist estate. I do crosswords, you know. The thing is, it's about relationships, really, and I just thought, 'Ah, that's funny; I bet no one's used that.' . . . Any of my albums could be called 'United States,' because I tend to write about relationships. That's just how it is."
He also mentioned his dislike for the band Green Day after seeing them perform at the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the interview:
"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."
While McLagan is now a solo artist he also played occasionally alongside the Rolling Stones.
