When DeLonge left the band, Skiba took his place.
He continues to be a member of Blink-182 when he is not playing with Alkaline Trio, his other band.
It appears that he and the drummer get along well because they are both current members of Barker and Hoppus.
Skiba praised Barker’s work ethic and untapped talent in an interview with NME in 2020, calling him a “wild musical mind.”
However, it doesn’t seem like Skiba traveled to Italy for Barker’s wedding.
Are Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker friends?
Since Barker and Hoppus are close friends, it was only natural for Hoppus to attend Barker’s wedding in Italy.
Barker revealed to E! News that following Hoppus’s cancer diagnosis in 2021, “Being my brother, Mark has my love and support.
I can’t wait for us to play together again soon and promise to be by his side both on and off the stage.”
Hoppus also revealed to GQ in December 2021 that he texted Barker the day after learning that he had cancer.
This led to an informal band reunion a few days later when DeLonge and Barker both showed up at Hoppus’s house to chat about life.
