“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Blink-182 was an American trio that played pop punk music. The band originally formed in 1992 in Poway, California by Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus , who quickly recruited Scott Raynor . Originally, the band's official name was "Blink", but the "182" being appended early in their career following an objection from an Irish band with the same name. In 1998, midway through a U.S. tour, Drummer Travis Barker, who was touring with The Aquabats on the same tour with Blink-182, later played the set because Scott Raynor had to leave for the day. After the set, Mark Hoppus and Tom Delonge sat down and talked about Travis Barker joining the band. The next day he became a member of the band and replaced Raynor permanently. DeLonge left the group in early 2005, with the band portraying it as an "indefinite hiatus". DeLonge went on to play alternative rock in a band called Angels & Airwaves, while Hoppus and Barker continued in a similar genre with their band +44.
