I think everyone calling for for the head of Hoppus should cool off, I mean lets look at it, the guy may not be Les claypool, but he serves his purpose. Hoppus can: 1. Keep rhythm and stay in time 2. Write a song that makes sense musically, maybe not complex but none the less. 3. Sing while playing (at a speedy tempo none the less) If Blink was really that bad they never would have had a contract back in the day, nobody could have predicted they would turn into teen icons they were far from it. Blink paid their dues can play well relative to their style, even though Hoppus is the least talented member past and present in the band, he does not drag the band down and can serve his purpose. In conclusion I play everyday and consider the practice time I put in quality in different areas, and I can still not sing and play at the same time, and still not write decent lyrics to basslines I come up with, this is why I must consider Hoppus better than me, and I know he probably worked hard at his craft to get where he is now, and if he "sucks" to critics I must "really suck", and I dont think im THAT bad.
