In recent interviews, Blink 182 members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker have spoken up more and more about their finicky ex-bandmate, Tom Delonge.
According to a new interview with Travis Barker, he mentions that Delonge wanted the entire sound of Blink 182 to change… and that didn’t settle well with the rest of his bandmates.
Watch the entire interview between Travis Barker and Mr. Waavy below :
Barker states, “For us, we were always like, ‘Blink is Blink, man. We want to sound like fucking Blink-182.’ That’s why we’re in this band… I never want any of my other side projects to influence Blink. I love Blink for what it is.”
One can only hope the three original members will see eye to eye again, but for now, we are just happy enough that Blink 182 are working in the studio at all.
After adding Matt Skiba as a new member, hopefully the band will go in a positive direction and be making music the way they planned without Delonge’s decisions.
