After being expelled from Poway High School during junior year after being caught drinking at a school basketball game. He attended Rancho Bernardo High School and was introduced to Mark Hoppus through Hoppus' sister, Anne. In 1992, they met Scott Raynor at their school's battle of the bands and decided to form a band together that would become Blink-182, originally just Blink but the band had to change due to an Irish techno band with the same name. Raynor was replaced with Aquabats Drummer Travis Barker in 1998. Though he agreed to go to rehab, the band fired him anyway. Travis was on tour with The Aquabats, another band touring along with Blink-182. After sitting in on two shows Barker formally joined Blink-182. With Travis on board Blink-182 released Enema of the State, which was met with a huge amount of mainstream success, spawning three hit singles. Follow-up Take Off Your Pants and Jacket went straight to No.1 on the Billboard 200. In 2003, Blink-182 released their eponymous album. DeLonge then decided to leave the band, allegedly due to mounting tensions and communication difficulties, creating a rift between him and the other members of the band. Blink-182 announced an 'indefinite hiatus' in February 2005.
