Tom Delonge is known for his enthusiasm for extraterrestrial beings and even founded his own space research company, To The Stars Academy .
In an interview with Joe Rogan, Barker was asked, “Does Tom talk about UFOs all the time?”
To which Barker replied, “He always did. We used to get loaded and just look out the bus window… and I used to do it with him as like kind of a bonding experience.
“With Tom that was his thing, ‘let’s get high and look for UFOs’… so we would, we’d just sit there and stare out the bus window and look at UFOs.”
Travis went on to say that Tom would sometimes go as far as to say ‘let’s go and look for Bigfoot’.
“He never got me on one of those trips because that was just too fairytale for me,” said Barker.
Barker said it wasn’t something he’d just gotten into, “from the day I met him, he was obsessed with UFOs and aliens and was always very passionate about it.”
He went on later to say that he feels like it could be real and that he believes — but he’s not dedicating his life to search for it.
“I give it to him man, to walk away from your very successful band to go do that shit — I have nothing but respect for his passion,” he said.
