    Alex Gaskarth talks about working with Mark Hoppus in the new issue of Rock Sound:

    “I did come up on blink and Mark was very much an inspiration to me, but we’ve had the honeymoon period as it were, become good friends… I’m not fanboying out in front of him anymore, like I used to seven years ago! I don’t think the creative process would be as honest if I was sitting there going, ‘Yeah, whatever you think man, I love you!’ We both keep each other in check, and push each other to do better.”

    Every comment of "Alex must be dying being in a band with his hero" felt like it weirdly reduced him to this teen fanboy as if he wasn't an equal.
