Another Update: We have received the following statement from Tom DeLonge's publicist.
Contrary to reports, Tom DeLonge has not left Blink 182. “I never quit the band,” he says. “Actually, I was on the phone discussing a possible Blink-182 event in New York City when I heard the ‘news.’ The ONLY truth here is that I have commitments that limit my availability this year.
To all the fans, I never quit the band. I actually was on a phone call about a blink 182 event for New York City at the time all these weird press releases started coming in... Apparently those releases were...
The settlement reportedly included a 12.5% writing credit to both Petty and singer-composer Jeff Lynne (of ELO fame). The song’s credit on ASCAP — that’s the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers — now lists Smith, Petty, Lynne, and Jimmy Napes as the chief songwriters.

This new music service agreement covers my Content ID account and it includes mandatory participation in Youtube’s new subscription streaming service, called Music Key, along with all that participation entails.
MTV sat down to talk with Jake Karlen, also known as the kid on the cover of Fall Out Boy's American Beauty/American Psycho.
I didn’t know the band at first, and then the photographer told me [the shoot was for] Fall Out Boy. I knew their name but not their music so well.

Pro Tools has announced they will soon be offering a free version of their software.
