“Now, we just have to cast our showgirls, create our set list – a true throwback of Vegas classics with Sinatra, Liberace. Maybe we can even marry someone onstage… The possibilities in Vegas are endless.”

During a recent interview on KROQ’s Kevin and Bean morning show, Blink-182’s Travis Barker confirmed that he has been working on a documentary on his own life. The film will feature a several interviews includung ones with Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus, and more.
Barker said the following when asked about DeLonge:
“He just did a really important interview for my doc. It’s basically the counterpart to my book. So four people were interviewed to create this trailer and it was Mark Hoppus, my dad and Tom DeLonge.”
“I haven’t really said anything [about the documentary]. It’s been in the works and it’s by the same people who did Steve Aoki’s documentary. We kind of started talking to them a while back. You know, it was kind of inspired by the book, but they dig deeper, so it has begun.”
“It’s one thing to read in a book, like, ‘OK, this… happened to you.’ Or, you know… ‘Oh, you were in a plane crash.’ But to actually see footage from it, and news clippings, and friends and family talking about it—it’s just another level.”
There is no release date yet, but he says it should be out “really soon.”
Blink-182 have commented on Chester Bennington’s tragic death, and have confirmed that their “Blinkin Park” shows with Linkin Park are officially cancelled. They posted the following:

Blink-182 have premiered a new video for their song “Home Is Such A Lonely Place.” This song is from the group’s latest album, “California.” The band commented:
“The video for ‘Home is Such a Lonely Place’ was probably the easiest we’ve ever filmed. All we had to do was be ourselves at home with our family and friends, as we prepared to leave for tour. Consequently, it’s also our most personal and honest videos, and one of my favorites.”
