I don't really trust it. He talked to him for 5 minutes at a concert. That's not the best source in the world, seeing as he could have easily misunderstood him or misheard him. The kid doesn't seem all that smart.

If anything, they probably just have a studio drummer while they're doing the other parts, and Atom will do the finished drumwork.

Yeah, what I'm thinking is they'll have the studio guy lay down some demo tracks, and when Atom returns he can just do the drumming for the final tracks.

meh, it's possible. I guess I don't care that much, and we'll know when dex announces something. Until he does, though, I assume atom is drumming for the record.

I wouldn't blame Atom for wanting to stay out with AVA. I'm happy for him they're doing so well.

ugly uglies... but still not as bad as tom. seriously, making a rock or peace sign is lame. He has this blank stare. He's obviously not even remotely happy to be meeting his fans. Probably because of how gay they are.

I didn't know that AVA only did shows for "special" people, how nice of them. Well, maybe 'cause Tom's pretty special himself.

Offspring of offspring
12-04-2006, 01:54 AM
I think maybe what will happen is that the legendary Josh Freese will return for studio time. Don`t forget that Atom hasn`t actually recorded a thing with the offspring yet due to touring etc. Freese even did the drumming for Can`t repeat even though Atom is in the video. So i think Dex, Noodles and Greg will write, maybe demo with Josh and then try to haul back Atom from tour for the recording of the whole album.

I can`t decide whether Atom is being cheeky or not? I mean, i`m a drummer and I totally respect him for how much work he does. But landing the gig with the Offspring is such a big deal, and Atom`s still off touring and doing different things. what does anyone else think guys?

Yeah, I don't understand it. You become part of the band that has the greatest selling indie-album of all time, and arguably one of the most successful punk bands of all time, with all but one album being certified as at least gold, and then you go off and join what I see as a shitty, ego-driven emo/stadium rock band. I don't quite understand that logic, but hey, whatever makes him happy I guess.

You still haven't changed "Swatson" to "Swanson" in your signature.

According to Soundscan, "We Don't Need To Whisper" is just a couple months away from matching "Splinter"'s sales to date. AVA's album came out this summer. "Splinter" came out a few years ago--and its sales are a fraction of "Americana"'s sales and just over half of CO1's. Be mad, hurt, whatever that Atom is touring with AVA instead of recording with the Offspring, but do not under any circumstances underestimate how big a deal a gig with AVA is right now. Only time will tell if AVA will be a flash in the pan or if they'll be able to endure and make a career out of their success.

So please, enough with the ad hominem attacks.

You're all saying it's so great to be drummer for The Offspring, and it's stupid that Atom joined AVA. Then, why did Ron leave the same band to form his own, which is still relatively unknown?

It's not always about success, it's about doing your own thing, doing what you want (doing what you feel like). Album sales don't mean shit when you don't like what you do.

Venom Symbiote
12-04-2006, 01:56 PM
Agreeing with both of you, here.

But, gotta admit I was under the impression AVA weren't doing so hot after their first single. Then again I haven't exactly followed them much. Still, beating Splinter isn't really a huge feat I guess, especially when you're riding the emo bandwagon. Pretty much guarantees sales if you have a name like Tom DeLonge and long shaggy hair wearing black jackets.

But yeah, you can't take cheapshots at Atom for joining AVA. That's just being a total tampon. The guy's essentially built his career playing with multiple bands, and The Offspring knew that when they signed him up.

Give the guy a break, honkeys.

has tom delonge lost his FUCKING MIND?! what is wrong with that man... he seems utterly displeased in the fan pics. Not very happy.. I'm sad blink 182 went on an "indefinate hiatus" or other words broke the fuck up... blah.

Because AAA, or AaA would just look stupid

the 'v' symbolizes an upside-down 'a'

Hence AvA

you are just guessing.

AVA, is a partial reference to DeLonge's daughter, also named Ava. The abbreviation also, according to DeLonge, represents the band's initials with an inverted "A" in the middle, which stands for "victory". A third cause for the abbreviation is that when the letters are pronounced individually, it sounds like Avia, the beginning of the word "aviation", one of the band's artistic themes.

PRETENTIOUS.

Where were you the last 5 years? Ron left for gods sake! he won't come back, never! And what's the bad of it if they get a better drummer? and what's the difference since is dexter who writes the drum parts too?

AVA, as much as I hate them, was guarenteed way more success in the beginning than the Offspring's recent work. While the Offspring is basically on a downhill slide to "cult status", AVA have tons of leftover fans from Blink, plus a lot of people checking them out because of the hype. It didn't pan out nearly as good as it was supposed to, but it still at the time was a good move on Atom's part. Also, not every musician out there is going to jump at the chance of being in the Offspring like you guys seem to think. Face it, they're not as respected as you guys think they are.

Secondly, maybe he likes AVA better than the Offspring. He's allowed to.

calling you a moron means I'm having an orgasm? Umm. I think you need to learn about sex, because they're pretty unrelated.

And what do I want? I would love it if you'd either get a brain or leave the forum. But really, I don't care. I just accept that you're retarded and I move on with my life.
