Tom DeLonge returned to the stage with Blink-182 at Coachella on Friday after nearly a decade’s absence from the band. His first song with them was, appropriately, “Family Reunion.” They gave their new single, “Edging,” its live premiere midway through their 18-song set and closed with “Dammit.” Coachella has posted “I Miss You” and “What’s My Age Again” from Blink’s set on YouTube and, of course, there are also plenty of fan-shot clips for the rest of the songs. DeLonge later posted on Instagram that, “From break ups, to plane crashes, to cancer… @blink182 is [effing] back. We’ve only just begun to offend. Ya can’t cancel this [craaaaappppp].”

Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliott says he’s down for a band biopic but says the idea presents a few challenges. He told ‘Metro’ “It’s always being discussed, but let’s not forget there was an MTV movie in 1999 that was f***ing awful’, adding that the next one would be “a hell of a lot more accurate.” Elliott then pointed out a problem with a Def Leppard biopic, explaining “”There is a story to tell, but the only problem is from a media perspective it’s just about two big things: Rick [Allen]’s arm and Steve [Clark]’s death… We’d have to pull out a lot of truths that were never told to make it interesting.”

Don’t Expect a Young Guy to Be the Next James Bond There have been a lot of names thrown around for the next James Bond, but there’s still no word when the choice will be announced. One thing we now know, however, is that it probably won’t be a young guy. A casting director working on the new Bond flick says they’re looking for someone with more “life experience.” “We did look at a lot of younger actors, and I just don’t think they had the gravitas. They didn’t have the experience, they didn’t have the mental capacity to take it on . . . Because it’s not just the part they’re taking on, it’s a massive responsibility.”
