The more news that comes out regarding this Blink-182 stuff, the more painful it gets to post about it. Last night Tom DeLonge posted on Twitter that "A year ago Mark and I spent a week on the phone with managers debating parting with Travis...don't pretend there isn't more to this story" -- that tweet has since been deleted. I'm trying to think of something to bring positivity to this situation but am drawing a blank. I guess ... rank some stuff or something. As I wrote on Facebook yesterday, one of the things that first drew me to this band was that it seemed like they were all friends just having fun together and playing crappy punk rock music. That carefree attitude was what I wished...

Kanye West tweeted something yesterday, knowing full well we'd go gaga. And then he totally 180'd us, because all he was announcing was that Big Sean's new album is called Dark Sky Paradise. Gonna be a while before I trust you again, Mr. West. The album comes out February 24th, and an album sampler featuring Kanye is in the replies.

Rolling Stone has talked with Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker of Blink 182.
We're booked January 5th to go into the studio. On December 30th, we get an e-mail from Tom's manager saying that he has no interest in recording and that he wants to do his other, non-musical stuff and that he's out indefinitely. There's a flurry of e-mails going back and forth for clarification about the recording and the show and his manager sends [an e-mail] back saying, "Tom. Is. Out." Direct quote. This is the exact same e-mail we got back in 2004 when Tom went on indefinite hiatus before.

Tom DeLonge has talked with Comicbooks.com about his new Poet Anderson project.
I've always been an admirer of forms of art that can be communicated in different mediums. One of the greatest things about comic books and animation is that it involves the imagination of illustrators and writers together. When they join forces, it creates something that can transcend either of on their own. It's a great way to imagine a story with a paint-brush.

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.

I love Blink-182 and I’m not leaving.”

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 Sun is reporting that Tom Petty has been awarded songwriting royalties for Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" due to its similarity to "I Won't Back Down".
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.

John Nolan has a new album in the works, and it's all going to be funded through PledgeMusic. Don't know what PledgeMusic is or how it works? Neither did I, but it's pretty rad. Check out what John had to say about the site and what he has in the works for his upcoming solo record in our interview.
My last solo album came out almost 5 years ago now, and then Taking Back Sunday has put out 2 albums since then. A lot of what I’ve been working on has gone to Taking Back Sunday, but here and there I’ve had ideas for songs that I’ve put aside. In the past year there was a quick burst of stuff that came out after Taking Back Sunday’s album that I was feeling like “Oh my gosh, here it is”,...
