Mark Hoppus was born in Ridgecrest, California, On March 15, 1972. He lived with his father; Tex Hoppus who worked for the U.S. Department of Defense, mother Kerry Wernz, and his sister Anne Hoppus until they got divorced when he was eight years old.
He and his sister then spent his two years moving back and forth between his mother’s and father’s houses. His father moved to Monterey later.
He received his first bass guitar as a gift from his father as a gift, at the age of 15 and fell in love with it.
He also had an interest in skateboarding and punk rock in junior high. Hoppus never took bass lessons and instead taught himself by playing to different bands.
He idolized Robert Smith and used to dress like him to his high school. He completed his high school from Burroughs High school.
He initially had formed a band with his two friends covering songs by Descendents, Social Distortion and Bad religion. The group performed at parties and bonfires.
Later, Mark moved to San Diego in 1992 and joined a college, which he later quit. He worked in a local music store in San Diego.
After moving to San Diego, he reunited with his sister. His sister acknowledging Mark’s desire to be in a band introduced him to Tom Delonge. The two started to perform in Delonge’s garage.
Delonge then recruited Scott Raynor as the drummer for their newly formed band named Blink.
Hoppus and his girlfriend lived in a basement apartment, which they barely managed to pay rent. He decided to buy a new amp and a bass cabinet, which led to his girlfriend arguing and demanded he chooses between the band and her, which then resulted in him leaving the group.
Shortly after, Delonge told hoppus they were to make a demo tape. He decided to break up with his girlfriend and join the band. They recorded “Flyswatter,” which ultimately gave them a chance for their first show.
Blink’s first album “Cheshire Cat,” released in 1995, was a good sell for a new and independent band. The band then signed for their first-ever national tour for which they bought their van.
The following year MCA Records signed the band and was to co-distribute their next release. Hoppus then wrote “Dammit,” which became a nationwide hit.
Hoppus gradually felt less significant to the band, which led to internal tension between the members and ultimately led to Raynor getting off the group in 1998.
Travis baker was then brought in as the new drummer for the group. With producer Jerry Finn they recorded “Enema of the State,” which was the start of their career.
They were known to be the biggest pop-punk band of the era. Three singles were released – “What’s my age again?” “All small things,” and “Adam’s Song.”
Right before Hoppus getting married in 2000, the band was preparing to record their highly anticipated song called “Take off your pants and jackets.”
Hoppus felt satisfied with his work, but Delonge had other plans. He created a post-hardcore side project, “Box Car Racer,” to try ideas that seemed unsuited for the bad to him.
Hoppus felt Betrayal and then later led to being a cause for the band to split when the group was to regroup to record their next release. In February 2005, the band split up, which greatly affected Hoppus.
Jerry Finn, their producer, passed away in August 2008 deeply affected Hoppus. Later next month, Barker got into a plane crash, which he survived, fortunately. In February 2009, putting aside past differences, the band reunited to produce a new album.
Hoppus’s new show “Hoppus on Music” required him to fly to New York every week. Which further complicated their recordings which were already “on eggshells.”
Then, his moving to London with his family further complicated the matters. Their comeback album “Neighbourhoods” released 2011 was undersold, and Blink-128 parted ways with “Interscope Records.”
The band toured Australia in February 2013 and then the US in September. In 2015 Tom Delonge parted from the band which was filled in by Matt Skiba.
Hoppus had also released a clothing line named “HiMyNameIsMark” in 2013. In 2019 January, Hoppus announced a new band being formed with Alex Gaskarth called Simple Creatures.
Mark Hoppus met his wife to be Skye Everly on the set of his famous music video All The Small Things. The couple dated in 1999 and after a year in December 2, 2000 the pair got married.
Blink 182 bass guitarist and vocalist turned his one day rehearsal for “All the Small Things” into years long marriage and two years after their marriage, Skye gave birth to a son Jack Hoppus.
Currently, the musician lives in Beverly Hills, California with his family.
In 2013 (Tom, Mark and Travis) reportedly stopped talking to each other, they were having problems from a very long time but 2013 by many was the downfall of the legendary Blink 182.
There were instances where Tom Delongs will wear AVA's cap on the stage performances, they really were struggling to put things together and Mark and Travis put out an official statement to kick Delonge out of Blink 182 and hire Alcaline Treo's Matt Skiba to fill Tom's place up.
Prior to that, frequent back and forth allegations from band members sure proved that Mark and Tom are not in good terms. But, recently Tom has followed both of his band members in social media.
When a fan dated Mark to post something on Tom's Instagram, mark wrote:
I still love you
To which Tom replied:
Oh that sexual tension
Which proves that the former members of Blink 182 are still in good terms but Tom is busy with Aliens and To The Stars Projects along with his AVA project and as per Tom, if things go as planned, the former band is set to unite again and produce good music for their fans.
