Bassist Mark Hoppus has hinted that a Blink 182 reunion is on the cards.
In an online posting on his official site, Hoppus reveals that drummer Travis Barker's near-fatal plane crash has paved the way for a reconciliation with Tom DeLonge, who left the band in 2005 to form Angels And Airwaves.
"In the midst of everything else that has happened lately, Tom, Travis and I have all spoken together," said Hoppus. "First through a number of phone calls, and then a couple of weeks ago, we all hung out for a few hours. They've all been great, very positive conversations. We're just reconnecting as friends after four years of not talking. It's a good thing."
"Obviously the first question for a lot of people will be 'does this mean a Blink-182 reunion?'," he adds. "The answer is none of us know. We haven't talked about it at all. Right now, it's just good for the three of us to see one another, reconnect and let the past be the past. The events of the past two months supersede everything that happened before. Life is too short."
Personally I could not be more excited and welcoming to a Blink reunion, I mean they're one of my favorite bands. However in the same breath im a bit dubious of the strength of this new "reconnected friendship" and it could lead to a hasty tour leading to a massive fuck up and everything going back to square 1. This is coupled with the fact Tom may have spent too much time, the last 4 years, with the God fearing AVA to still have the same effect when singing about fucking dogs and his grandad shitting himself.
Either way...anything that get's rid of that god awful Angels and Airwaves is fine by me.
