Blink-182

    By

    Blink 182 started off as a power-punk trio that gigged relentlessly and goofed about constantly. Yet, over the course of five blistering studio albums, Blink evolved into one of the most influential post-punk outfits in music, which led to sales in excess of 20 million records worldwide. They split up in 2005 amidst tales of barbed acrimony after which the band was replaced by running record labels, founding merchandising empires, forming numerous splinter bands such as +44 and Angels & Airwaves, screening MTV reality shows and escaping a fatal plane crash. Then in 2009, Blink 182 shocked the world by announcing they were reforming with a new album and a rush of massive live shows. This book tells the story of the band through exhaustive research and a slew of exclusive interviews from people who have worked with and around the band, chronicling for the first time ever a seminal modern rock act.
