Former Blink-182 musician on the UFO phenomenon, Roswell and becoming UFO Researcher of the Year.
Tom DeLonge, who was once a member of the popular band Blink-182, raised some eyebrows back in 2016 when he announced that he was giving up his career in music to devote himself to the study of extra-terrestrial activity full time.
UFO are Advanced Aerial Threats (AATs)
When DeLonge made his announcement, he met a great deal of ridicule and many people claimed that he was just going through a rather silly phase. However, a year later, he has shown that he has the capability to become a figure of serious influence in the UFO research community.
He has been given the ‘UFO Researcher of the Year’ award and has been working on a crowdfunded campaign intended to raise the money to build a spaceship that will be used to study aspects of the UFO phenomenon, or ‘Advanced Aerial Threats’ as he and his colleagues refer to them.
DeLonge is not coy about speaking publicly about his work and his beliefs about extra-terrestrial activity on this planet and the UFO phenomenon. He has recently appeared as a guest on The Joe Rogan Experience to discuss his work. In the course of the interview, he explained why he and his colleagues have begun to refer to UFOs as Advanced Aerial Threats and the current state of his relationship with his former bandmates.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of his interview is his views on the infamous Roswell incident of 1947. He explains that he believes that the crash at the military base was not actually extra-terrestrial in origin but most likely hailed from either Germany or Argentina but that the technology had hallmarks of extra-terrestrial technology which the US government wanted to keep secret.
He claims that the conflicting stories that emerged in the period of time following the notorious incident were a smokescreen to ensure that the public never found out the truth about what had happened. “We put out a story saying, ‘It’s alien!’ And then we put out a story saying, ‘It’s a weather balloon!’ But the real thing it was we didn’t want anyone to guess, ” he said.
Despite his misgivings about the extra-terrestrial activity at Roswell, DeLonge has no doubts that the Earth has been visited by aliens. “What people need to realize is the UFO phenomenon isn’t a phenomenon. The universe is f**king gigantic and there’s life everywhere!” he said.
