Mark Hoppus Speaks About Possible Blink 182 Reunion Rumours

Mark Hoppus has spoken to MTV about a post on his blog last November, when he mentioned him, Travis Barker and former band mate Tom Delonge were talking together, but only as friends.
Hoppus now says that at the moment a reunion is unlikely but if it were to happen "it would have to be the most amazing, ridiculous, mind-blowing show and tour ever".

Mark Hoppus' full quote can be found below:

"The future is wide open. ... Blink-182 wasn't manufactured by a label, and we weren't making music to make money or for fame. We were three friends in a band, writing music that we loved. That's where it began and ended. Before there's reunion talk, we need to get back to that point again. Actually, we would need to get beyond that point, to a place where you can say to someone, 'Hey, man, I'm not really feeling this,' and be able to argue constructively about the music. Because that's where the best of Blink-182 came into being. The pull between the ideas the three of us had. I've always thought that the three of us each brought something unique and special to the songs, and the collision of those elements made the music what it was. In short, we would need to get back to where we're all close enough friends and artists to be able to tell each other, respectfully, 'Suck it.' My final thought is this: If — and this is a big if — Blink-182 were ever to re-form, it would have to be the most amazing, ridiculous, mind-blowing show and tour ever. I feel like, as bitter as our breakup was, we stepped back at the top of our game, and we'd have to come back even stronger and better than before."
