So yeah just read a Mark Hoppus bash thread and I got to wonderin, so I figured someone here might know the answer. This new Blink 182(2) band called Boxcar Racer to my knowledge was formed by Tom and Travis (guitarist and drummer of Blink). Now I could understand if it was a side project, but it's not, it's just Blink 182 without the bassist. My friend and I have discussed this too. He has a pretty good name for Boxcar Racer, which is called "F*** the Bass Player". So basically, can someone tell me why the guitarist and drummer decided to ditch the bassist?
