It consists of Mark Hoppus who is a vocalist along with being a bass guitarist, Tom Delonge who is also guitarist and a vocalist and Travis Barker as the drummer. Previously Scott Rynor was their drummer. Both Mark Hoppus and Tom Delonge were introduced by Mark’s sister as she knew that both of them desired to form a band. The two of them used to ply for many hours in Tom Delonge’s garage and showed each other the songs that they had written previously and also wrote new songs together. Soon both of them decided that they needed to form a band officially. Tom Delounge brought along another of his friend, Scott Rynor. All three of them began to play together and named their band ‘Duck Tape’, until Tom Delonge thought of giving the band the name ‘Blink 182’.
