Billie Joe Armstrong Talks About his Substance Abuse

Billie Joe Armstrong is opening up to Rolling Stone about his substance abuse issues that led to his onstage meltdown at the iHeartRadio festival where he complained that Justin Bieber got more stage time than did Green Day.

"I'm a blackout drinker. That's basically what happened [that night]."

And his pill problem:

"I started combining them to a point where I didn't know what I was taking during the day and what I was taking at night. It was just this routine. My backpack sounded like a giant baby rattle."

The tour that was canceled due to his rehab as since been rescheduled to start again on March 10.
