Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker Open up about Tom Delonge and Address the Future of Blink-182


Rolling Stone spoke with Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker about the situation with Tom Delonge and his status as a member of blink-182. It seems clear from the interview that Delonge is out. Below is a quote from Barker:

I think he’s just bummed because Mark and I were finally honest. We always covered up for him before. It was always, “We’re going to record an album,” then “Tom refuses to get into the studio without a record deal.” So everyone does hella amounts of work to get a record deal and now Tom isn’t part of Blink-182. It’s hard to cover for someone who’s disrespectful and ungrateful. You don’t even have the balls to call your bandmates and tell them you’re not going to record or do anything Blink-related. You have your manager do it. Everyone should know what the story is with him and it’s been years with it.

Today’s events have been quite confusing for blink fans, leaving everyone wondering what in the hell was going on. This evening’s interview seems to clear the air to some extent – Tom Delonge is no longer a part of blink-182 and the long-term future of the band as we know it may be in serious question.
