oh, i'm not dissing it. i love strings!

and no, it's not jazz. it's pop punk. i'm simply pointing out that tom is no brett gurewitz (bad religion) or el hefe (NOFX) or jake kiley (strung out).

but one of the cool things is that at sixteen, i could figure out all of tom's guitar work on cheshire cat.

i'm in my forties and i still can't play like gurewitz or el hefe.

I think those particular players have improved as they've matured but I would still make the argument that neither of those two (I never liked Strung Out) ever sat down and thought about music theory either.

gurewitz and el hefe? for sure. both have formal music education in their background.

but you're right, you don't need to have studied music to shred. "chops" just means raw playing ability.

Have you ever heard Velvet Alley by them?

or most anything after suburban teenage wasteland blues. they are one of the most technical melodic metal-punk bands of the last 25 years. sidenote: in a guitar magazine interview tom listed strung out's crossroads & illusions EP as his current favorite.

edit: i found it. guitar world, august 1999 -

Sometime Mark is full of shit. 

i think he has a completely different view on what a legacy band is... Just because you put out new records doesn't mean you're not a legacy act... you actually have to play the songs you wrote.

Exactly.

He is a scared lazy bitch sometimes I guess. He fears that the crowd won’t like the new songs and let’s be honest, it’s easier to play the known shit again and again compared to rehearsal new material.

"When Tom left the second toaime, Travis and I had a conversation because we could very easily ride off into the sunset and play greatest hits sets into infinity, but that's not what we wanna do". -Mark Hoppus.

???

 

Is he really that delusional?
