Tré Cool

Greatly Appreciated

Tré Cool (born Frank Edwin Wright III; December 9, 1972) is an American musician, drummer and composer, best known as the drummer for the punk rock band Green Day. He replaced the band’s former drummer, John Kiffmeyer, in 1990 as Kiffmeyer felt that he should spend more time towards college. Cool has also played in The Lookouts, Samiam, and the Green Day side-projects The Network and the Foxboro Hot Tubs.  (More from Wikipedia)
In late 1990, John Kiffmeyer left Green Day to attend college, with Tré Cool – formerly with the Lookouts; Lookout! Records founder Larry Livermore was their guitarist – filling in on drums and eventually joining the band permanently. The lineup of Green Day has been stable ever since, although Jason White joined the band on stage as a second guitarist beginning in 1999 and was an official bandmember between 2012 and 2016
