2597339534_a00791909b-Blink 182’s members have reconnected. According to Mark Hoppus, the recent death of producer Jerry Finn and Travis Barker’s plane crash brought the three back together. While this doesn’t necessarily mean a reunion, the fact that they’re all talking is a step in the right direction. “We’re just reconnecting as friends after four years of not talking,” he says. “It’s a good thing. Obviously the first question for a lot of people will be, ‘Does this mean a Blink-182 reunion?’ The answer is none of us know. We haven’t talked about it at all. Right now it’s just good for the three of us to see one another, reconnect and let the past be the past.” The band’s last show was Dec. 16, 2004, in Dublin.
