Here's the Wayback Archive of one of the best blink fan sites from the late 90s/early 2000s I frequented a lot back in the day. This guy was a friend of the band. He let them crash at his place when they played in Texas back in 95 I think?

Man, those oldschool pics. Back when it was all about the music, getting yourself out there and going for it.

Off... I am starting to lean slightly towards davey nowadays - how can you experience the energy, passion and dedication of the "old" times and then be satisfied with the uninspired, greatest hits era, when something was always delayed multiple times. It regressed into three dudes not getting over themselves to stay in a room and write a proper album for whatever years that went on.

i mean, if you saw the beatles at shea stadium in 1965, how did wings come off in the late 70s? that's fair way of comparing seeing blink on the enema-era tours and then having to stomach california and NINE.

Thanks for this mate , love the insight back in time -  that Thrasher interview was sick . Mark and Tom saying how Scott is the only one with ambitions outside of the band itself...

@Ry-Bread if you want to try and get ahold of nick he'd probably be an amazing interview for your podcast:

Second this.

Nick got to hang with them at the 1997 MTV Sports and Music Festival along with having them crash with him in 1995. I'm sure he has some cool stories.

Although Raynor intends to finish high school by pursuing "home studies," he hasn't written college out of his life.

"I'm definitely going to go to college, and eventually [I'll] grow up and get a real job," Raynor says. "Even if the band becomes really big, there's no saying how long it will last. I want to make good music, but I don't want to miss out on other opportunities. I'm already missing out on my senior year of high school. Besides, I don't want to be 30 and still in a punk-rock band. That seems kind of scary to me." -J.N.
