Two Billies, one car. The new “Musicians on Musicians” special issue of Rolling Stone magazine features the breakout star Billie Eilish and rock staple Billie Joe Armstrong, as the two details their paths to stardom and musical backgrounds together.
Regardless of the age gap, the two found similarities in views and the up-and-downs taken with success early in their careers.
“But the lyrics are also just very real,” Armstrong said of Eilish’s music. “That’s important when you’re surrounded by things that sound synthetic and not very real.”
“Thank you,” Eilish responded. “I’ve been surprised people like my music. Because there’s such a world of liking nothing, music that’s not really doing anything.”
The two went on to discuss their careers, with Armstrong sharing tips with Eilish in how to move forward beyond a successful debut album.
