I really think that too many people try and compare Travis Barker, who has really only begun his career, to jazz greats like Buddy Rich, who had over 3 decades of work under his belt. Travis serves the pop-punk purpose well; as I have said before, can anyone think of a pop-punk drummer who out-does him? The closest (I think, I'm not even remotely a fan of pop-punk) drummer to Travis' skill is probably Longineu Parson (the Yellowcard dude). Then again, I really don't know pop-punk (I don't even listen to it).
