– It was completely unrealistic to suddenly come face to face with the great hero. You can say that Billy is like the main idol. It was totally wild.

It is not uncommon for Green Day to choose one of the audience to play with the band on stage, and hold the guitar afterwards.

– How did the audience choose you, was it planned for you?

“I had good support from friends for the appointment, but it wasn’t something we talked about earlier, it just happened spontaneously,” says Svendsen.

– It’s too sacred to use it. I’ll take good care of it, so we may see how much to use it.

– Is it a good guitar?

“Yes, it’s decent stuff, a guitar too good to give away, and too sick to get it as a gift,” says Svendsen.
