Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Tre: I just go and play. It's not a question of resting or stopping or
      wimping out or hitting soft. I play as hard as I can. We just know how to wring ourselves out. On demand, we just put in every ounce of energy that we have. It's getting harder. The bigger places that we play it gets harder to get the energy, because it takes longer to get ready and
      you're there longer and it's boring and stuff. But we don't pace ourselves. By the end of it we're just wrecked.

    • Tre: It is, totally. The reason I just play the snare is that if you play the whole drum set when you're mad, it can sometimes piss you off more. Because it's a lot harder and you can be more
      critical. On a snare, you don't expect anything of what you're playing.
      But what happens is you end up doing something totally incredible with
      just one drum. And then you impress yourself.

    • Tre: My hands are the first things I have trouble with, because the calluses wear off. Like right now I've got totally baby hands. Usually it's like
      crazy calluses all over the place. So here's a drummer's tip __ soak
      your hands in salt water every day for a week before you go on tour
      again. It toughens up your skin. When you take a bath put tons of salt
      in the bath, swim in the ocean, go surfing or something every day for a
      week. It dries out the top three layers of skin with the salt, and
      strips the oil from it. You don't want any live skin touching the stick.

    • Tre: When we're on tour I play all day, and then we play a gig at night. We keep a little Slingerland practice kit backstage, the one that I
      actually use at my house. It has a rack tom and a snare and one cymbal
      and a hi-hat. We have little teeny amps for bass and guitar. And we just
      play backstage, like surf songs or whatever,because we don't stay in
      hotels. We stay at the gig on the bus and hang out with the crew all
      day. But I don't drum at home as much as when I'm on tour, because
      there's so much stuff to do around the house.

    • Tre: In fact, we have about 30 songs ready to record. By the time
      we get into a studio, we'll probably have 50. We made Insomniac a little
      weirder to help us avoid the sophomore slump and so that people don't think
      we're all commercial. But the new songs are catchy, catchy catchy!

    • Tre: We're not breaking up, but it's cool that people are talking about us. It's good for publicity.

    • Tre: I cut my first record when I was 10 years old for a band called Lookout. From that band grew Lookout Records, which is now a prominent label in the punk scene.

    • Tre: I wanna survive an avalanche, I wanna be one of those people a dog finds buried under a ton of snow, almost dying of starvation.

    • Tre: Music has never been at a better time then it is right now, we're really lucky to be a part of this wonderful thing called music.

    • Tre' Cool: I count to 4 and repeat. I'm a drummer.

    • Tre' Cool: Don't get me wrong. Not too many people smoke lettuce.

    • Tre' Cool: Orange mohca-frappachino!

    • Tre' Cool: Tre' Cool is the drummer for Green Day and he likes to (snorts a donut sprinkle) donut sprinkles. Ahh, what a sweet dream.

    • Tre' Cool: Roll, roll, roll a joint. Twist it at the end. Light it up and take a puff and pass it to your friends.

    • Tre: I object. I object to any killing at all. You know, it's terrible what happened and I think retaliation definitely makes sense and it's definitely one option. But, personally, I prefer peace. You know, maybe I'm just being ignorant and shortsighted, you know, it's true I'm not running the government, I'm not running the United States. I just don't think that killing people is a good way to remedy people dying. Martin Luther King Jr., said that you can murder a murderer but you can never murder murder itself.

    • Tre: You'd think we were really good at writing songs or something.

  • Tre Cool is my favorite drummer.

    No other drummer makes me filled with so much happiness than Tre Cool. I do not know why I love Tre Cool so much! The drum tabs of every song (Basket Case being my favorite), his amazing technique, and the amount of energy he has (A LOT) makes me go wild and crazy. He has given me so much inspiration about being a drummer; I just want to be like him. Whenever I watch live shows of Green Day, I watch Tre Cool. He is so hilarious sometimes, always acting up, and I love it when he gets the chance to sing. His skill at the drums and his fun personality makes me so fond of him. Whenever I listen to Green Day's music, I always tap my hands and foot with him. He is such a unique kind of guy.moreless
  • The best drummer in the world!

    Tre is the best drummer in the world! Hes also an awesome guitarist, and he's really good at the accordian in the song "Misery". His name says what he is, "Tre Cool" or very cool. I like his songs, they're funny and he has a funny voice. Hes hullarious during interviews and sometimes even live performances. I love watching Green Day perform on Letterman, because he always does something funny after they finish the song. He climbed the universal globe, which was awesome and extremely hullarious to watch. Tre is the coolest, funniest, awesomest person on the plannet, and hes the best drummer EVER! Tre rocks!moreless
