Blink-182




Blink-182 band members were at the Grammy Awards to present the trophy for Best Rock Album to Coldplay for ‘Viva La Vida’. They did that, but they also announced that Blink-182 are back together.

Emerging to sounds of their 1999 hit “What’s My Age Again,” bassist Mark Hoppus, drummer Travis Barker — wearing a sling on his injured left arm — and estranged guitarist Tom DeLonge walked out together, with Hoppus joking, “Isn’t it great to see the Jonas Brothers and Stevie Wonder back together again?” after the unlikely pairing performed a medley of the Bros’ “Burning Up” and Wonder’s “Superstition.” Barker added, “We used to play music together, and we decided we’re going to play music together again,” as DeLonge stood awkwardly to the side. Hoppus also yelled, “Blink-182 is back!”

Their appearance at the Grammys was the first time the three have been on stage together in four years. They took a hiatus in February 2005. From there, Tom DeLonge formed Angels & Airwaves. Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker formed +44. Their reunion started back in September 2008 when Barker was almost killed in a plane crash. They started making phone calls to each other, spending time talking and just hanging around. All that hanging around has resulted in the trio reunited and Blink-182 getting back together.

They put out a statement after the Grammys.

“Hi. We’re blink-182. This past week there’ve been a lot of questions about the current status of the band, and we wanted you to hear it straight from us. To put it simply, We’re back. We mean, really back. Picking up where we left off and then some. In the studio writing and recording a new album. Preparing to tour the world yet again. Friendships reformed. 17 years deep in our legacy.�?

The band leave things with the words “Summer 2009. Thanks and get ready…�?
