Default Re: Travis Barker

On one hand his fame reminds me of Gene Krupa's popularity among non-drummers.

On the other hand, some people (like whoever did the write up on him in DRUM! magazine) are kissing his arse a bit too much.

It's like those of us who still remember Tommy Lee's upside down drum solos having to read in an ad that Terry Bozzio is a "stunt drummer". Are you kidding?

Travis deserves whatever he's worked for, but popularity and skill don't always go hand in hand; the next Buddy Rich will be a long time coming, I'm afraid.
