I actually like Blink 182 better after their hiatus to be honest.
I think some artists need to move out of their original bands, Dave Grohl wouldn't be such a legend if he never started foo fighters. Though, I think in a lot of cases artists are better off staying in their first band.
I liked them both before and after
Dave Grohl was seen as the quiet one and when he formed The Foo Fighters he came into his own as a musician

Musicians should most definitely branch out and do other things. Why limit yourselves. I mean, there's only so much musically that you can achieve in a band like Blink 182. And just because others don't like it, doesn't mean it's not good. Fans of the original bands are more often than not, hyper critical of new music by artists outside their favourite bands. Which sucks. But really, only good things can come from working with others, in different environs and having new ideas and influences. Just because it's not a "hit" doesn't mean anything.
No truer words have ever been said in this thread. I never understand why people can't just take each band on their own merit and not be obsessed with the fact that they were "better" in the other band.
