Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge Thanks Matt Skiba For Keeping The Band Going During His Absence

Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge has taken to social media to thank Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba for filling in for him during his absence from the band. He said the following:

“Hi Matt – Tom DeLonge here. I wanted to take a minute and say thank you for all that you have done to keep the band alive and thriving in my absence. I think you are enormously talented (I still love to listen to your band to this day). You have always been so kind to me, not only in the press, but also to others. I really noticed. Emotions between the three of us in blink have always been complicated, but Mark’s cancer really put things in perspective. But to be honest, the band would not even be here today if it were not for your ability to jump in and save the day. So from my heart to yours, thank you for being a member of our band.”
