Travis Barker stopped by The Kevin & Bean Show to talk about the upcoming Musink Festival, the situation with Tom DeLonge, and future of Blink-182.

BLINK-182
“It’s kind of a different situation. We had agreed to do this show [Musink], we had planned this in November, or maybe even the end of October. We had all agreed to do it. It was concrete, Blink was headlining Sunday night and the day before New Year’s Eve we got an email saying ‘Tom indefinitely is taking a leave of absence for he doesn’t know how long, it could be forever. More than likely it’s forever and will not be doing anything Blink-related meaning live shows and recordings.”

“This is exactly how it went down 10 years ago too. No phone call from Tom, it was always his management just says ‘Don’t bug Tom, Tom’s out. Leave him alone,’” explained Barker. “It comes to the point where you can’t make anybody do anything.”

“I’m a more confrontational person. I’d rather talk to the source and work it out, figure it out. I don’t like playing tennis – you say this, I say that. It’s childish. That’s for like Housewives of Atlanta.”

“He’s [DeLonge] absolutely still my friend, it’s just he doesn’t want to play in a band. It’s like a chick. You’re not gonna make a chick that says ‘Hey I don’t want to see you indefinitely and I don’t know how long, I might not want to see you forever.’ You’re not going to be like ‘You get over here. You play with me right now.’ You need to give her her space, you need to let her go live… and it’s the same thing.”

“I juggle a lot of things outside of Blink. I record with tons of different artists, and I always seem to still know how to prioritize Blink. I still love Blink and it’s my #1 priority over everything that I do. But it’s like when you don’t have the same passion to make that your priority as well, it makes it hard to come together as 3 people when one person doesn’t care about it.”
