Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge knows every good interview starts at a urinal, so that’s precisely where he begins his tour of his dressing room backstage at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The trio — DeLonge, singer/bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker — hit up the city’s legendary venue this weekend with Fall Out Boy and gave the latter’s bassist Pete Wentz a haircut he’ll always remember. “This is the death of the emo swoosh,” Wentz tweeted after becoming “more aerodynamic.”
But before Blink hit the stage and busted out the clippers, DeLonge lounged with pals, limbered up and listened to the Cure. See for yourself, by watching the footage he was kind enough to shoot by himself with a Flip video camera, above. And if you’re looking for shots from the band’s stage show, don’t miss our gallery from their opening night gig in Vegas.
