Green Day bass player Mike Dirnt payed tribute to his recently deceased birth mother in a statement on the band's official website. Dirnt's mother Carol Alba Rowland put him up for adoption as a baby and the rocker reconnected with her just one month before she died.

"Today we mourn the loss of Carol Alba Rowland my birth mother! As many of you know I was adopted. Over the last ten years I have sought her out with the help of a good friend, only to meet her one month before her passing! I was blessed to have this moment as surreal as it was," he writes.

"The irony of this life never seize to amaze me, being that we were neighbours my entire life! We were able to share a cup of coffee, a cigarette and some smiles. She was a beautiful woman with a huge smile a hot temper and a kind heart. I will miss her as I did before, only now with some memories and a picture to go with the place in my heart! Love you mom!!!"
