Tom DeLonge, formerly the guitarist and co-lead vocalist of Blink-182, went in-depth about his beliefs on extra-terrestrial beings and mind control, along with his personal experiences of being tracked by the government.
Blink-182 recently made headlines, after politics and drama broke up the band for the indefinite future, according to the Los Angeles Times. At the center of the story was Tom DeLonge, who had either quit or has been kicked out of the band (depending on what side you’re listening to). But the guitarist has other interests to occupy his new free-time: UFOs.
Although plenty of celebrities believe that we are not alone in the universe: William Shatner, Will Smith, Halle Berry, etc., DeLonge has enormous dedication to the subject.
According to Paper Magazine, the Blink-182 guitarist spent the past two decades studying what he calls “the phenomenon.” His website Strange Times is designed to try and get knowledge of alien life to the public, something DeLonge claims the U.S. government has been trying to keep under wraps for decades.
Paper’s interview started off with a simple question: “when did you first believe in the existence of aliens?”
“I’ve been involved in this for a long time. I have sources from the government. I’ve had my phone tapped. I’ve done a lot of weird stuff in this industry — people wouldn’t believe me if I told them.”
You might wonder, who tapped DeLonge’s phone?
Tom DeLonge explains, that it was “somebody who was gathering 150 hours of top secret testimony specifically for Congressional hearings on government projects and the U.S. secret space program. People from NASA, Rome, the Vatican, you name it, they’re all on there.”
It’s much more than just contact with aliens that Tom DeLonge is researching, it’s the inventions and byproducts from governments.
“At the time I didn’t know it, but the person I was dealing with was being awoken in the middle of the night with clicking and buzzing noises and falling on the ground vomiting, every morning at 4 a.m. I know now that those are artifacts from mind-control experiments, where the same technology that we use to find oil underground, we can zap somebody at the same frequency that the brain operates on, and it can cause some really horrific things to happen.”
To be fair, DeLonge never says he has actually met an alien face-to-face. He does say though that he’s read at least 200 books on the subject and knows the phenomenon is quite ancient.
“What people have to understand is the basic history of the UFO is very simple. The phenomenon has been around forever. All the ancient religions were written down based on witnessing this phenomenon in various forms.”
Tom DeLonge’s interview goes on for some length. His answers are sometimes difficult to follow, and seem to miss the original question. Still, he does seem dedicated to a subject that captivates the imagination of many Americans.
