Mark Hoppus - Blink 182 To Last Forever

Mark Hoppus says Blink-182 will last ''forever.''

The bassist is thrilled the group's much delayed 20th anniversary tour is finally starting and wants to keep playing with guitarist Tom DeLonge and drummer Travis Barker for as long as fans will have them around.

He said: ''As long as we're having fun, I can see us going forever. That's the goal. To tour as long as it's fun. I hope that lasts forever. Our relationship is really strong. It's strange to think I'm still touring with these guys I was friends with twenty years ago. So much stuff has happened in our lives and we're still here together. We've come to respect each other a lot more: Our differences, our talents, our weaknesses. It's been a long road together.

''I can't wait for the summer. It'll be well worth the wait. We had to postpone the tour we had planned for last time because the record wasn't done yet which was a very difficult and painful decision but we ended up writing some of our best on the album during that period. There's going to be a lot of really cool lights, lasers, movie screens, new songs, old songs and a lot of really dirty jokes.''

Mark also said he is working on new material for the group but hasn't had a chance to show it to the other members yet.

He said: ''It's just ideas at the minute, me at home playing around on guitar. We haven't had a chance to get together as a band just yet to work on stuff so at the moment it's just some stuff to show Tom and Travis once we eventually start writing together again.

''I actually write on guitar instead of bass. I wish I was better at guitar, that I could do more but I get by. Hopefully we'll be back in the studio soon after the summer tour.''
