Hold up.Tom is an absolute dick, again and that's unforgivable. But if anything it was Tom who made Mark and Travis famous. He started the band. Which one of the reasons why I can't imagine blink without him inspite of his shitty attitude.
I hate this 'Tom started the band' argument. he was a 16 year old writing shitty riffs in a basement with an occasional drummer friend and then he met Mark and magic happened.
blink is NOT solely Tom. it's the combination of Tom and Mark, and it always has been. Tom is not some magic music ninja. he's a subpar musician with awkward lyrics and a terrible attitude who, in his youth, managed to connect to a lot of people with the music he created.
He's not a visionary, he's not the freakin' messiah, he's a rich moron with an ego the size of a sold out arena at a blink show.
I don't understand how people even still
see him like this.
