Default Re: Travis Barker

Travis' technique is a point of interest. In many ways you can tell his early drumming upbringing, the corps stuff. It's a tight grip that doesn't use much rebound with big sticks, as the majority of corps players play. Now most kit players would disagree with this approach (with a few notable exceptions). The important thing is that it works for him and it gets results, which are plain for all of us to see.

He's a flashy showman, he's an entertainer. He's a good drummer (not the best out there by any means, but for sure he's good) and he's inspiring kids to take up the drums. I see no issues. Beats, you actually make this thread worth reading sometimes, a positive voice of reason who's objective and not obsessed, but still a fan. More power to you.
