It’s like a soap opera with these three: they’re together, they’re not together, they’re back together, then one leaves to fulfill his UFO obsessions, you know, the usual.
Tom Delonge was speaking with the San Diego Union Tribune about his books, and opinions on UFOs, when he dropped that he could be back in Blink-182 “in a period of days”.
When asked about the band, DeLonge replied, “Blink is in my DNA. I talk to Travis quite a bit and we try and figure out how and when it’s going to make sense.”
“It’s not like I (permanently) walked away,” he said. “They have someone doing my job for me (in the band). It’s just that I’m so busy. If I wanted to, I could be back (in the band) in a period of days.”
Now that “someone” that Delonge was speaking of is guitarist Matt Skiba, who joined the band when Tom left in January 2015. And, unfortunately, the end of that quote means there is no definite time that he could be back.
I mean, if I wanted to, I could be a professional trapeze artist in a period of days, but you know…it’s just that I’m so busy.
