What Tom DeLonge Is Doing Now That Blink 182 Kicked Him Out

Although he still has Angels & Airwaves to occupy himself, when a musician leaves a band they spent so many years with, it's bound to hurt. What's Tom DeLonge up to, now that Blink-182 isn't part of his life? Here's how the singer is coping.

Striking Up a Friendship With Billy Corgan
Since few people understand what it's like to fight with band members in the public eye, DeLonge has struck up a friendship with someone used to drama, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan. The two recently Instagramed pictures of them having a fun-filled day jamming in the studio, hoping that Travis Barker and James Iha would get jealous.

Campaigning for the Next Presidential Nominees
DeLonge found his passion for politics when he campaigned for John Kerry in 2004, and is eager to endorse a politician in the 2016 election. So far none of the possible candidates have commented on his offer, except for Hillary Clinton, who said that she is "more of a Good Charlotte fan."

Starting a Clothing Line for Tall Musicians
Frustrated by the lack of stylish punk rock clothes designed exclusively for tall musicians, the 6'4" DeLonge is planning to launch his own clothing line, "All The Tall Things." Now that he's not on good terms with Mark Hoppus, a co-founder of DeLonge's clothing brand Atticus Clothing, this will be a way for him to channel his passion for fashion.

Funding a 90's Pop-Punk Memorabilia Museum
Feeling nostalgic for the decade when Blink-182 were still buddies, DeLonge is partnering with Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong to start a memorabilia museum dedicated to the 90's pop-punk scene in Tom's native town of Poway, CA. Word on the street is that former Blink-182 drummer Scott Raynor will be contributing, as well.
