Tom DeLonge Recalls His Music History

Posted by - 03:07 PM on 03/14/08
Tom DeLonge (Angels and Airwaves) reminisces on his first band and the creation of his current project in a new article.
From the Article"I don't think there was even a discernible style [in my first band], because we were all so bad. The drum player just wanted to do drum fills, and the other guitarist just wanted to play solos."

I'm not 100% sure that it's true, but I remember reading somewhere that this band he was talking about was called "Big Oily Men".

What's funny is how common what he's talking about is. Anytime I've seen a band try to start on their own really young, the only kid with talent is the one that played since he was like 8, and grew up on daddy's Led Zeppelin albums. And he's set in that for a while.

It's almost better to figure out your instrument after you figure out your music.

I really, really hope so. If Tom talked about Blink like that it would break my heart.
