Mark Hoppus Says He’s Grateful

Mark Hoppus is jumping back into the music scene after beating cancer.

On Sunday, the Blink-182 bassist tweeted, “Just want to say that I’m very grateful to be back in the mindset of ‘Oh! That’s a cool idea for a song lyric, I should write that down.’ I haven’t felt that in eight months.”

Hoppus was diagnosed with stage four lymphoma last year but is now cancer-free.
