    Tom DeLonge of Angels and Airwaves spoke with Mic.com:


    Well it’s not so much about Blink. It’s about what I’m doing with my life now. When you’re an individual like me, dealing with something that’s a national security issue, and you’re being gifted with the opportunity to communicate something you’ve been passionate about your whole life — something that has the opportunity to change the world over time — being a small part of that is enormously important for my life path.

    But I can’t do everything. I can’t tour nine months out of the year with enough time to do the enormity of what I’m setting out to do.

    He was always like this, but when we were younger we thought it was cool.

    He sounds deluded about his own importance and in general about reality.

    Every time I see this stuff it just bums me out.

    I agree. At this point its just a bummer. Tom's a huge talent, he just can't seem to focus his energy in a way to utilize his talents.

    Lol classic Tom: Events have happened on the ground. It's all around us. I know of stuff I can't talk about right now.

    "I, I do important things now. When you're like me - extremely talented and gifted and you're worried about national security, you don't worry about touring in my cash cow band. Because I want to seem like the bigger man. Once I discover the aliens, and they play my albums throughout the galaxy, we'll see who's laughing"

    yes, it is sad. Very sad that his mind is this warped. Hopefully it's not early onset dementia.

    One minute Tom is all about blink-182 (even when he isn't in the band) next minute he's a million times better than/above blink-182.

    I wish he would just make up his damned mind.

    Hmm yes I can see why those two things would conflict. It would suck to miss a call from Mars because of a sold out arena show or something.

    Mars: Hello? Is this Tom Delonge?
    Tom: YEWWAH!!!!!!
    Mars: We want AVA to play a gig on the red planet, you down?
    Tom: YEWWAH!!!!

    I don't even think that would get him to play a show as A&A.

    "Yeah, isn't that the weirdest thing? It's weird that people remember that song. It's, like, an eighth album track from, like, 20 years ago" - 3rd song Tom, THIRD SONG.

    Haha yeah and he spoke like song 8 on an album is the least memorable or something.

    I just don't get why he thinks people WOULDN'T remember that song. It's great. He truly underestimates how enjoyable and interesting his songwriting was at the time, considering how boring it is now!

    It was entertaining before but I think there's something else going on with him. Aliens are cool but it's scary how delusional he is. I hope he gets help.

    like, he really doesn't sound that bad? He's quite clearly incredibly passionate about this whole thing and the more he's learned from these "sources" at these big organisations the more his passion has been validated (for lack of a better word). It's just a worry that these "sources" are not quite at the level he thinks they are & they're just bullshitters...

    The US Government is not giving some D tier musician any truly classified info.
