Why are you always talking about how good Danny and John are I mean sure there great drummers but you can't always compare Different styles of drumming Travis is way different then Danny carey like Blink-182 or Transplants is different from tool. Everytime you post you talk about how good these drummers are. All drummers are different they play what there good at now Travis deosn't only play pop stuff but he plays jazz but I would say he fits in the pop/punk catagory and that's what he plays and I don't think he would really change from that but the Drumming for Boxcar Racer really impressed me and had some Jazz drumming on some of the tracks.
