Tom DeLonge says he “could be back” in Blink-182.
DeLonge, the former Blink-182 guitarist, left the chart-topping pop-punk band in 2015 to focus on sci-fi novel authorship and UFO investigation. Blink forged along without him as bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker enlisted guitarist Matt Skiba (previously of Alkaline Trio) to replace of Tom. Is DeLonge on his way back?
“I still own the band,” Tom revealed in an illuminating new interview. Although he was recently named UFO Researcher of the Year by the 2017 International UFO Congress for his literary inquests into the extraterrestrial, DeLonge claimed he “could be back [in Blink] in a period of days,” saying he never permanently left the group.
In a new interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, Tom DeLonge talked about rejoining Blink-182.
