Recognized as one of alternative rock’s most influential guitarists and songwriters, Tom DeLonge is an award-winning musician, producer and director, best known as the lead vocalist and songwriter for the platinum-selling bands Blink-182, Box Car Racer and Angels & Airwaves.

The whole punk rock thing has nothing to do with music. At all. . . . It has to do with the transformation of being one of the group to an individual and having the balls to say what you want to say, do what you want to do, and follow the path that seems fit.  – Tom DeLonge

Over more than two decades and 25 million albums, Tom’s guitar tone and riff-driven style has become one of the genre’s most identifiable, combining melodic and intricate riffs and roaring overdrive with ambient soundscapes and soaring delays to craft explosive anthemic soundtracks that are undeniably the sound of California punk and alternative rock. Watch Ernie Ball: The Pursuit of Tone ft. Tom DeLonge August 19th at 8PM ET/PT on DirecTV Ch.239 / AT&T U-Verse Ch.114.
