Tom DeLonge makes me scratch my head
I don't get Tom DeLonge.
At last year's Virgin Mobile FreeFest, I watched him crack anatomy jokes like a 13-year-old with his Blink-182 band mates.
When I talked to him about his other band, Angels & Airwaves (they play Rams Head Live tonight), he was chatted my ear off about metaphoric symbolism.
"We're not just bringing a catchy song on the radio. We have symbolism with deep rooted historical consequences. Our songs relate to these larger-than-life philosophies. We have a movie that tugs and pulls at different emotions. A lot of our graphics were the juxtaposition of love and war to show that tug of war in human existence."
Here is a link to the piece, which ran in Friday's paper. I think if there is a theme to what Angels & Airwaves is doing, it's that the band is hoping for success through sheer force of will.
"Human intent can change all matter around you," DeLonge said.
