Re: Travis Barker
These Travis Barker/(insert a popular drummer name or your choice ) "he's overrated but not as much as you think" debates will never end ...
The guy is an excellent drummer, he is quite creative and can groove very well in his genre !
I am tired of people telling " well bro he ain't Colaiuta or Donati", the talents of a drummer cannot only be measured by technical chops people.
Phill Rudd can make a stadium dancing like no other and his technique is not spectacular.
But he plays the best rock/blues/boogie grooves on the planet !
There are other things : feel, creativity, pocket, groove, showmanship, sound (listen to the latest Blink, Travis sounds excellent on this), charisma, originality, taste etc etc
That is All !
