Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker Slam 'Disrespectful, Ungrateful' Tom DeLonge

FUSE TV - Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker Slam 'Disrespectful, Ungrateful' Tom DeLonge

UPDATE #3 (1/27/15): The Blink-182 controversy continues. While guitarist Tom DeLonge claims to have never left the band, Rolling Stone hopped on the phone with the band's other two members, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker, and things got icy. Hoppus and Barker both say DeLonge did quit, exiting the band "indefinitely." 

The most heartbreaking comments came from Barker, who said: 

"It's hard to cover for someone who's disrespectful and ungrateful. You don't even have the balls to call your bandmates and tell them you're not going to record or do anything Blink-related. You have your manager do it. Everyone should know what the story is with him and it's been years with it. When we did get back together after my plane crash, we only got back together, I don't know, maybe because I almost died. But he didn't even listen to mixes or masterings from that record. He didn't even care about it. Why Blink even got back together in the first place is questionable." 

Oof. Hoppus added: 

"I want to go out and play the songs that we've been spending the last 20 years of our lives writing. That's what Travis and I want to do. If Tom doesn't want to do that, which obviously he doesn't, that's OK. He doesn't have to be embarrassed or try to claim that he's secretly really working on Blink. People know what's up. C'mon, man... 'I didn't quit the band,' it's just not true. It's disingenuous. I just wish Tom does whatever makes him happy and stops holding Blink-182 back from what we all agree that we're going to do: play shows, record music, CONTINUE this legacy and have a good time doing it."

Bleak stuff. Read the full interview here.
