More than 20 years of research and reflection led to the new book. DeLonge’s perspective turned to the heavens in early adolescence, he told The Washington Post in a recent phone interview, after witnessing the conflict between his mother, a devout Christian, and his father, who was “not religious at all.” He began to wonder if something sinister was at work.

Tom DeLonge: "blink-182 is in my DNA"

Even so, DeLonge has no regrets about his decision to favor To The Stars over blink. But his connection to the band remains strong.

“Blink is in my DNA,” he said, suggesting an eventual reunion is likely. “I talk to Travis quite a bit and we try and figure out how and when it’s going to make sense.

“It’s not like I (permanently) walked away. They have someone doing my job for me (in blink). It’s just that I’m so busy. If I wanted to, I could be back (in blink) in a period of days.”

From a business perspective, DeLonge never left blink.

“I still own the band,” he noted, before quickly clarifying that he, Hoppus and Barker “own everything” blink-related.

Tom DeLonge: "There's going to be more blink-182 and there's going to be more music from Angels And Airwaves"

The guitarist said on Fade to Black podcast: "I'm still playing music, I'm recording more music than I ever have, I still talk to the guys in Blink all the time - I talked to Travis just a few days ago.

"We'll figure it out. There's going to be more Blink-182, there's going to be more music from Angels & Airwaves and I'll get back on the road shortly.

"Right now, I gotta complete some big stuff.

"No, [the door is not closed on Blink-182]! I still own it. [Laughs] People forget that I have to be OK with what the situation is now, and I am, I'm totally fine.

Tom DeLonge Talks Travel, Dogs, Tattoos & UFOs

Through the magic of an inbox message from an old friend, I got the crazy news that I had the go-ahead for an interview with Tom DeLonge. Needless to say, I had my questions finalized and typed out within a couple hours. Then about a week went by, and with each day I got more nervous. Nervous about my questions, nervous about my weird voice, nervous about sounding like a nerd or a fanboy. All I could think of was this picture I scored with Tom at Warped Tour in like 1999… If my memory served me, I had brutal sunburn.. pig tails.. and giantttttt blue camo pants on.. *cringe* ..

Tom DeLonge sets the record straight in new documentary

In an exclusive comment for Alternative Press on why he ended up doing the film, he expresses his desire to set the record straight once and for all. "I'm hoping this will answer most, if not all, of the questions for those who are looking for answers. It’s easy to judge and make your own conclusion from headlines and quotes taken out of context,” he shares. “This is the full story of my career from start to finish. It feels good to be able to put it out there in a comprehensive way.”
