Green Day Tour With Tre Cool

Tre Cool’s full-time occupation of the Green Day drum-stool began with a period of transition. During this time Kiffmeyer would occasionally play, even turning up at gigs where Tre played but, by late 1991, Cool was the band’s official drummer. They began playing any dates the band could grab, in the Bay Area and around America. The same age as Billie Joe and Mike Dirnt, Cool was the missing piece in the musical jigsaw. His arrival heralded a new era for the band which, as a result, grew tighter as a live unit. The trio were able to share the hardships and small pleasures of being a young band with a growing reputation.
