John Kiffmeyer’s Biography

Al met Frank Edwin Wright III (Tré Cool) while playing drums in his garage. The first band that integrated Al into the punk scene was Isocracy, in 1986, very popular in the famed Californian club 924 Gilman Street, where he was remembered for his particular stage development: he used to interrupt the shows with jokes and monologues, and get up and walk away from the battery. Al later joined Sweet Children, a band made up of Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Ryan Pritchard (Mike Dirnt). Band that later would change its name by the one of Green Day. After the releases of several EPs and finally its subsequent compilation in 1990, 1,039 /Smoothed Out Slappy Hours, the first Green Day album came out. He composed “I Was There”, third song of this album. He also helped produce the second album of the band called Kerplunk.

Al Sobrante left the band to go to Humboldt State University in Arcata, California, and Tré Cool, 17, already a resident of Berkeley, took his place. He later joined another Berkeley band called The Ne’er Do Wells, which he abruptly left in 1994, having recorded a split and a 7 “with them.After the departure of Al Sobrante, this group disintegrated. He entered briefly into some bands like The Ritalins and was the manager of The Shruggs, both local punk bands of not much success.He recently produced an album, The Lost Troublemakers Album, for The Troublemakers, a garage rock band from Sacramento, California. /p>

Really since Al Sobrante left the music, it was not known much more about him, only that he used to repair bicycles. Currently, he lives in San Francisco, California, works as a director of photography, specializing in green screen and producing mainly commercial work, and is married to experimental filmmaker and professor at San Francisco State University, Greta Snider. < /p>
