Mark Hoppus says his favourite book made him want to ‘put on some gloves’ and ‘catch killers’.



The Blink-182 star has been discussing some of his most beloved things, including his favourite tome.

Mark says Thomas Harris’ 1981 book Red Dragon ‘ the first novel to feature serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter – had a profound effect on him.

‘[It] was written a long, long time ago, but it’s the original of the CSI series and it made me want to join the FBI and out on some gloves and catch killer,’ he explained in an interview with NME magazine.

Mark has also discussed the first album he ever bought. The 39-year-old musician is still inspired by Michael Jackson years on.

‘The first album I ever bought with my own money was on cassette and it was in 1982 and it was Michael Jackson’s Thriller,’ he revealed.

‘The front-of-house manager for our tour uses Billie Jean as the song to EQ to entire system, so I still hear that song two or three times every single day.’

Mark also revealed his most beloved song lyric.

The American guitarist says The Beatles She’s Leaving Home left a lasting impression on him since first hearing it.

‘For some reason that song has always affected me in a way that I can’t quite explain and has even almost made me break down and cry,’ he said.

‘Right at the end, the part where it goes ‘She’s leaving home/Bye bye’ it’s a simple lyric, but in that context it’s so powerful.’
