"This is the thing. I have ADD and I have this company that was a hobby that I built into a real thing," says Tom DeLonge when describing his recently launched company, To The Stars. "We do entertainment stuff, technology stuff and we build brands. I have the ability, which is probably a bad thing, to do a bunch of weird shit however I want. As long as I don’t tank it, they are pretty supportive!"

The San Diego native’s previous hobby has now expanded into an empire based out of Southern California, which is also home to his other business ventures Macbeth Footwear and Modlife – a technology that creates fan clubs for artists, with an impressive roster spanning from the likes of Pearl Jam to Kanye West to Nine Inch Nails.
