It’s not by chance that Tom DeLonge is no longer in Blink-182. According to the ex-vocalist and guitarist, he quit because aliens told him to.
Everyone knows Tom DeLonge quit Blink-182. Do we know why? Now, yes. Turns out the ex-vocalist and guitarist quit the band to focus on a “national security issue” otherwise known as UFOs. As he told Mic in a recent interview, “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.” Say it ain’t so, Tom. You did go, so it looks like you’ll have to turn the lights off and carry yourself home now. [Mic]
