Mark Hoppus: "blink-182 are stronger than ever"
“We broke up for five years and there was all this animosity and bad stuff said about each other in the press,” Mark recalled to British newspaper Metro. “There was a period when all these horrible things were happening - friends of ours were dying, Travis was in a plane crash. I think after that everybody was just emotionally drained from the entire experience and we were ready to reconnect.”
“I got a phone call from our friend asking if I was OK and I didn't understand what he was talking about,” Mark explained about Travis Barker plane crash. “Then he told me Travis had been in the crash and was alive but badly injured. I got on the first plane I could and went to visit him which was very surreal.”
