Tom DeLonge has revealed on Hoppus’ show After School Radio how he and Mark Hoppus made peace like nothing has ever happened almost 5 years after losing contact.
Blink-182 was formed by Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge, and Scott Raynor back in 1992. Tom DeLonge worked with the band as their lead vocalist and guitarist until 2015. In 2015, Blink-182 was planning to record their seventh studio album but it was delayed as a result of DeLonge’s hesitance to work with the band. He was later dismissed from Blink-182 and pursued a solo career instead.
Now playing with Angels & Airwaves, Tom DeLonge still keeps in touch with his former bandmates Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker. Considering his and Hoppus’ positive attitude towards a reunion, the fans are also waiting for DeLonge to rejoin Blink-128.
Hoppus and DeLonge recently appeared during a chat on Hoppus’ Apple Music 1 show named After School Radio. Talking about how they managed to talk like nothing has happened after five years of not communicating, the pair revealed their thoughts. DeLonge said it was because they appreciate d*ck jokes and Hoppus agreed with this statement.
DeLonge revealed his opinions on the issue, saying:
“Because we appreciate dick jokes in a way that no one else does. It boils down to only that, there is nothing else. It’s that, in my opinion.”
Hoppus then added:
“I think so, because the first time that we met, I think it was dick jokes from the beginning in your garage.”
Almost every Blink-128 fan is aware of the close friendship between Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge. As for now, Hoppus is battling cancer and Tom DeLonge was among the first to show his support for his friend and former bandmate.
