Former Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge has ruled out ever reforming the punk band because he couldn´t bear to perform the songs he wrote in his youth.
The singer - who now fronts Angels & Airways - enjoyed huge success with his rock trio, but he has disappointed fans by insisting it´s impossible to reunite a band who sang about "first dates."
DeLonge feels he´d be cheating himself and the band´s followers if he were to impersonate the man he used to be.
He says, "I really cannot see any possible way that Blink would get back together, nor do I have any desire for it. It was a really amazing, magical time for me when I was young but, now I´m older, I´m doing things that reflect my life now.
"It would be a lie to myself to go and sing about first dates and girls at the rock show. That´s not really what I´m about right now."

You let me down Tom you let me down. Do it for your fans! You are one of the greatest mucisians in history do a one year reunion tour "for the kids"!
i think angels and airwaves are brill, i also loved blink! so really don't mind what tom does as long as he keeps singing!! would love to see him in uk again!
So let me get this straight, your calling Tom DeLonge selfish because he doesnt make the kind of music YOU like anymore? hmm alright. At least he wont sell out just for money and fans. He's doing what he believes in now. Go ahead and read what you just wrote and THEN tell Tom to "grow up".

tom is a douche bag, get the fuck over yourself and get back together with the greatest band in history youll sell out for AVA just like you did in blink, cal mark and travis and grow the fuck up tom
Watch AVA live. He bullshits before he starts. Always.
And blink 182 can write mature songs. What would you call "not now", "Stay Together For The Kids" and even to a large extent, "Man Overboard".
AVA might not be so bad if tom stopped...whining when he sand.
