Tom DeLonge Says It Would Take ‘A Few Phone Calls’ For Him to Rejoin Blink-182
Although it seems Blink-182 are pleased with the addition of Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba, former member Tom DeLonge hasn't closed the door on getting back with his old band. While at Comic-Con in support of his new graphic novel, Poet Anderson… Of Nightmares, DeLonge was asked what it would take for him to record new music with Blink-182, and he responded, "probably just a few phone calls." Check out the full interview below.
At the moment, though, it seems as though his former bandmates are intent on moving forward: Mark Hoppus said in an interview in May, "We are right now going through what so far has been a friendly divorce with our former guitarist. Hopefully things clear up and it doesn’t get all manager-y and lawyer-y and all that and we can move forward."
Skiba would also enjoy keeping his place behind the microphone for Blink-182, saying in April, "It’s something I would be very excited to do and I’ve known the Blink guys for about 15 years and we’ve become good friends. Playing songs I haven’t written with Mark and Travis is a blast, so to go in and create music with them would be amazing."
