The Official, Comprehensive Blink-182 Timeline

Recommended Posts

What was it that he lied about? He contributed to a lot, but he definitely thought higher of himself versus us.

I think that's what bothered me, was this elitist attitude straight off the bat

The fact that Davey had such a close connection to the band at such an early time does give him some bragging points for sure. But I think he did brag a bit much. He put out in the Blink collector forum that he would not accept Facebook friend requests and would not respond to private messages. The friend request thing I can understand, but the private message thing felt a little elitist. Like " I don't have time for you"....which he obviously did because he posted on here.


 


I just think he had a tough time accepting that there was life after Scott Raynor, and that the band did in fact move on. Just cause you pop back in 15 years later to see whatsup doesn't mean you can claim you were around when Blink was a real band, and all the rest of us fans aren't really part of Blink's history.

I don't think he lied, I just think he needs to get over the fact that the period he was a fan of the band makes up about 3-4 years of their 23 year history - there is more to blink than Cheshire Cat and playing shitty basement shows. Fair enough it was his favourite era, we all have ours too but he CONSTANTLY reminded everyone of it and just said shit for the sake of saying shit to remind everyone of how much better blink were back then.


 


I'd laugh if Mark just thought he was a weirdo creeper who just stalked the band, actually wouldn't surprise me to be honest.

He would he dislike for Travis era of blink, but he still went to go see them live many times and collected stuff post-Scott, yet he claimed anything after Dude Ranch wasn't good. He tried so hard to be a hipster.

I like Daveyjones. He shared lots of cool shit with us and helped reignite my interest in the band. Whether or not he may have been rude, I don't really care, because he posted great stuff that we weren't getting from anyone else.

I agree to an extent, I certainly appreciated all the cool shit he brought like the zine interview and stuff. but even in PMs with me he was like mocking me calling myself "blink historian," which I added eons ago and forgot about lol

I think this a lot but never say it, Scott was a fucking awful drummer - especially live.

Would love to hear Travis beats on Dude Ranch.

I like Scott's drumming live, still appreciate his live performances :)

He's awful, but so are Tom and Mark, it worked. I love Travis and think he's a much better drummer, but Scott did have his charm. his heavy handed, simple charm.
