Thanks for ruining my dreams.

People always have this idea that backstage is this amazing place to visit, but it's usually just people sitting around, bored.
It's really interesting when my friends come backstage for the first time and they're looking for this giant party and it's just a bunch of people poking around, doing their job, getting to work. It's like when people come into the studio when you're recording. They go, "Oh, I want to come see you guys record!" They think everyone is just rocking out in this 10-hour jam session. They come in and people are working the gear, setting up mics, we record a part, "How was that? You like that sound?" You work about half an hour getting a bass sound. They're like, "This is so boring." Then they leave.

Never get tired of reading about these guys. "We all have different ideas. I bring beats to them" - I like that one Mr. Barker.

It always makes me a little upset when Tom basically implies that Mark has no sense of innovation or experimentation. They've both evolved.

Seems like that angels album that had to be finished so soon seemed to be more of a contractural obligation then Tom picking AvA over Blink. Thats good to hear. Also I loved Travis's last 2 questions.

A joy to read them talk about the band like that. Again really enjoyed Travis' answers, especially the last one.

especially when Mark has the most experimental Blink song ever, Fighting The Gravity lol.

When we look back now, after my crash when Tom and Mark finally came to my house, about thirty seconds went by and Tom and Mark are telling dick jokes. It's like, "Look, you dickheads didn't talk to each other for six years and now everything's completely fine." You realize how petty some shit was we were all fighting over.
Best moment of any blink-182 interview ever.

some answers made me cringe a bit (especially the ones about blink being a "compromise") but I always love to hear what these guys have to say. more people need to interview travis!
