Tom DeLonge just go named UFO researcher of the year…. Yeah, this might be one of the strangest things we’ve ever heard, especially since most people assume DeLonge is bat-shit crazy!
But regardless of your thoughts on Tom, it’s an amazing achievement. Come on, guys. After all, this is the same man who sang about fucking a dog. It’s safe to say that he’s come a long way on the maturity front. But this isn’t Tom and how boring he’s become (ha ha. We’re kidding… kind of). We would love for someone to name us person of the year for one of our hobbies. Sadly, we don’t think going to gigs and eating an unnatural amounts of pizza are considered hobbies to the wider population. Still, the recognition would be nice.
And because of this strange, yet wonderful honour this pop-punk legend has received, we decided to think up a list of hobbies we think other musicians would be good at—it was a long, and extremely weird, list, but here are our top 6!
Jack Barakat – Distiller/brewer
We all know Jack Barakat loves his alcohol. And we like to believe the boy is drunk 24/7, because, well, that’s the only way to explain his extremely inappropriate and downright absurd behaviour.
But one thing is for sure, the dude likes to drink, and he even owns a bar in Baltimore, The Rockwell, so it stands to reason that Barakat has a good knowledge of alcohol—an alcohol connoisseur if you will. So we definitely think he’d know his way around a distillery.
