Tom DeLonge, the guitarist of a rock band in the US which was popular in the early 2000s has denied rumours that he's quit the band to focus on research into UFOs and aliens.

Tom appears to be staying in the band, but is going to spend more time looking into UFOs and other weird and wonderful conspiracy ideas.

"I couldn't tell the band I was working with people in the government," he says. "That's another big part of this story. People think I want to just put out a novel and make a movie. I have 10 people that I'm working with that are at the highest levels of the Department of Defense and NASA and the military."
