Top Ten Facts About Tom Delonge

The Top Ten

1 He actually had a series of backstage passes that were Powerpuff Girl themed.

YES! PPG and Blink-182 in one! The best ever! I wonder if Tom DeLonge was a PPG fan when the show came out because of this (I hope he is, that show is rad and fits his personality). I think he would like Buttercup the most. - AnimeDrawer

2 He grew up in the suburbs of Poway, California, where he spent his youth skateboarding and playing guitar.

He sucks at guitar, and I bet he was considered a bad skater.

3 He is the lead vocalist and guitarist of Angels & Airwaves. He was also one of the two vocalists and guitarist for Blink-182. He was also the lead vocalist and guitarist for the band Box Car Racer.
4 He had used a Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier amp head and a Marshall JCM 900 amp head along with Mesa Boogie and Marshall cabs for live shows.
5 For Angels and Airwaves, he made use of the same rack system minus the Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier but also included a TC Electronic G-Force effects unit as well as two Palmer PGA-04 amp simulators (one for the Triaxis preamp and one for the JMP-1 preamp
6 His vocal setup consists of blue mics – he used the blue kiwi on every album before 'Take Off Your Pants and Jacket'.
7 He was raised by his mother, Connie, and his father, Thomas Sr., in Poway, California. He has an older brother, Shon, and a younger sister, Kari.
8 He was kicked out of Poway High School during his junior year (1991) after being caught drunk at a school basketball game.
9 He was an average student in school.
10 When he returned to Poway High School during his senior year, the students voted him Homecoming King despite the fact that he was not even on the ballot.

I heard that it was a just a joke to make the school staff mad. Not sure though. - AnimeDrawer

The Contenders

11 He didn’t play after school sports

Finally I can relate to someone. I don’t play after school sports since I am not allowed to. And Tom hated the jocks, and did not really like playing sports, so he did not play. I hate rude jocks too and basketball is overrated. - AnimeDrawer
