Thomas Matthew DeLonge is an American musician, singer, songwriter, author, record producer, actor, and filmmaker. He is the lead vocalist and guitarist of the rock band Angels & Airwaves, which he started in 2005, and was the co-lead vocalist, guitarist, and co-founder of the rock band Blink-182 from 1992 until he departed from the group in 2015.
Thomas Matthew DeLonge Jr was born on December 13, 1975, in Poway, California, to Thomas DeLonge Sr. and Connie Delonge. Tom's father worked as an oil organization official, while his mom was a home loan specialist. He has an older brother named Shon and a younger sister named Kari.
As a child, Tom Delonge liked skateboarding a great deal and skateboarded for quite a bit of his young life in Poway; he also wanted to be a fireman when he grew up. Therefore, he participated in the San Diego Cadet Program. For school, DeLonge Jr. first went to Poway High School before he was ousted in 1991 in his junior year for being gotten drunk in a high school basketball match-up. Following his ejection, Tom enlisted at Rancho Bernardo high school, where he completed off in 1993. He was so popular in Poway that they voted him in as Homecoming King when he returned to the school in his senior year.
While Tom Delonge was with the Blink-182 band, he was additionally associated with different bands. The Box Car Racer band included Travis Barker on drums, David Kennedy on lead guitar, Anthony Celestino on bass, Tom played guitar, piano and sang. Their album, Box Car Racer, was released in 2002.
In July 2019, Blink 182 asked famous rapper, Lil Wayne, to go on tour with them; however, it appears as though it was a terrible match. Some audience members have said through social media that the rapper is distressed with the tour. On one visit at the Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia, some of those in participation tweeted that Lil Wayne played 20 minutes before leaving the stage and demonstrating that he may be done for good.
DeLonge began dating Jennifer Jenkins, whom he had known since high school, in 1996. They married at Coronado, California, on the San Diego Bay, on May 26, 2001. At the reception, the band Jimmy Eat World performed. DeLonge gifted silver yo-yos from Tiffany & Co. to each of the groomsmen, including Mark Hoppus. DeLonge filed for divorce in 2019. Delonge married a woman named Rita Marie in May 2021.
DeLonge and Jenkins have two children: Ava Elizabeth DeLonge (born July 15, 2002) and Jonas Rocket DeLonge (born July 15, 2002). (born August 16, 2006).
DeLonge has always believed in aliens, UFOs, and conspiracy theories, even before forming Blink-182.
Travis Barker, a former member of the band, stated in a 2019 interview that he is pretty passionate about them and that he would check for UFOs outside the tour bus window and even form search groups to find Bigfoot. DeLonge launched To The Stars, Inc. in 2015, which he then combined into the bigger To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2017. Aside from the entertainment section, the new corporation has aerospace and science divisions dedicated to ufology and To the Star's co-founder Harold Puthoff's fringe science suggestions. In a 2018 financial statement filed with the SEC, the Company stated that it "has suffered losses from operations and has a $37,432,000 accumulated deficit as of June 30, 2018. The Company's ability to continue as a going concern is harmed by these circumstances."
In 2019, the business created the History Channel television show Unidentified: Inside America's UFO Investigation, which also features DeLonge and is about the USS Nimitz UFO encounter.
The Pentagon declassified three films of UFOs that were shot in April 2020. DeLonge's Company in 2017 previously distributed these videos.
