He seems a bit irritated by some of the things on his Wikipedia page haha. Wondering if any members of this page helped write his Wiki page, and if they wrote any of the offending parts?

Especially the part about Blink 182 at 9 mins 30 secs

The guy also picked a couple of things of The Answer on this site. The Blink 182 bit for example.
It was indeed something really weird without any source or anything... That's why I deleted it from The Answer back then.
There's still quite some old stuff in The Answer of which there's no shred of evidence or are just plain weird.

Our new Answer editor Brandon/Stinger66 is on top of it 🙂

To be fair, I came away with the impression that Graffin is super sensitive more than that there is anything very wrong with his Wiki page or The Answer from that interview haha. The 'unfortunately' bit in reference to their tour with Blink I took as a reference to their not getting along together (which I feel I have heard elsewhere too); I didn't at all think whoever wrote that meant to imply Graffin hoped to be as famous as Blink by touring with them. It's like he doesn't realise the people writing about him are his fans; they're not people out to get him!

I think the professor in him came showing through, criticizing bad writing, which he has probably had to deal with too many times.

Or, maybe he just hates it when people who weren't even in a given situation try to act like they were there and print their version of the truth on a supposedly reputable information source. Ever consider that?

Our history would be very short if you had to witness everything that has happened.

Greg has mentioned before that he is very sensitive to his fans criticism. (Google: Greg Graffin Studio Q)
