What can I say about him? He is a horrible singer, a mediocre guitarist, but for some reason, people (including me) seem to enjoy his music.
His first band, blink-182, kicked some serious ass back in the 90's and early 2000's. Mark Hoppus sang more and was a much better singer, but Tom had the "Fuck me up the ass" attitude. This made him funny and fun to listen to.
Blink took a break in 2002 and Tom formed Box Car Racer. BCR wasn't as funny as blink, but still fun and catchy.
In 2003, everything went down the toilet. blink-182 released the "blink-182 (Self titled)" album. This album had Tom singing the majority of the bullshit like "I Miss You", "Always", and "Feeling This". "All good songs, just not his style" I said to myself until I heard the rest of the songs on that terrible album. They had joined the emo dark side and later broke up.
Tom later on went to form Angels And Airwaves, a pathetic excuse for a band with only a few good songs. He claims that the new band will change the world, but his ex-best friend begs to differ. Travis and Mark's new band, Plus 44, has one song released, "No, It Isn't", which is about Tom.
Now...Tom doesn't give a shit about his fans anymore. Just watch the Interviews on www.angelsandairwaves.com in which he lies about almost everything the guy asks him. He still has the potty mouth, but where's his sense of humor? Anyone who knows him, please encourage him to talk to these people: Jaret Reddick, Chris Burney, Erik Chandler, and Gary Wiseman.
Tom DeLonge: Angels And Airwaves is going to change the world!
Mark Hoppus: No, it isn't
