It’s a strange day for Blink-182 fans – in a span of a few hours, we hear that Tom Delonge has left the band, and amazingly he doesn’t know it himself. Rolling Stone spoke to Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker on the situation, where they honestly clarified the issues involving the band. Will they still use the name Blink-182 in future? I don’t know, but hey +44 is a great name!
Summary of events:
1. We learnt that Tom DeLonge had “indefinitely” left the band and that Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba would replace DeLonge for the band’s upcoming set at Musink Festival.
2. Tom Delonge insists that he is still in the band.
3. Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker speak to Rolling Stone.
