Travis Barker says Tom’s replacement Matt Skiba is “actually playing the guitar instead of just Pro Tools”

In a recent interview with Alternative Nation, Travis barker commented on Tom DeLonge’s departure from Blink 182 and his replacement, Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio.

As far as I’m concerned, no bad blood from me. I wish him the best in everything he does. I think the right thing for him to do would just man up and quit the band instead of telling people he didn’t quit and just be real with the fans… I think for Tom, he doesn’t like punk music and it was a phase for him…

Regarding Skiba:

We are two weeks in to practice and he’s killing it. There’s harmonies that have never been sung. He’s actually playing the guitar instead of just Pro Tools.
