HipOnline.com caught up with Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge for a Q&A and asked if the band felt challenged by the imitators coming out in the wake of their success. “We do think about that stuff. We did what we wanted to do in the past, but now we are at a different point and can make a different record that challenges us and might carve out a small place in music history,” he said. “If anyone likes it I don’t know, but that is our goal. We followed other bands, but I think we have our own style and bands following us don’t have their own style. They are missing that curiosity that we have. It has nothing to do with four walls that close you in that you have to be punk rock or selling records. We always just wanted to make music that we loved. This record will show that.” Check out the entire interview here.
