    Pursuit of tone - Tom Delonge

    This won't be many people's cup of tea but I really enjoyed this. I happen to like Blink 182 and think they write great, catchy songs but I know it's easy to discount Tom because the songs aren't technical and because of his deep interest in Aliens / UFOs. Anyways, beyond all the fart & penis jokes, he's actually a pretty articulate guy and hearing the band's history through his evolution as a person and musician was interesting.

    tbh, I often find these sorts of things interesting to watch whether I like the person's music or not. There's just something pleasant about listening to a passionate musician explain what they were looking for.

    Been watching a few minutes of this whenever I get a moment.

    My favourite bit so far - "Dude, looking cool is like... 90% of music.................... it might even be 93%".

    Dude he's talking about his childhood. He's a skater-bro-dude-type-man from California, how the fuck do you expect him to talk?

    Isn’t this the guy who quit a platinum (albeit shitty) band, to chase UFO’s?

    Probably. I'm done watching it now. He's stopped talking about guitars and amps so I'm not interested any more...
