Default Re: Travis Barker

I used to be an avid rock fan, but now find myself more interested in technical death metal and some jazz (I prefer drums that take thinking if you know what I mean). I also believe Travis is overrated. I have some friends who say that "Oh my god Travis is so good". But looking at his solos, all I see is some crazy ape bashing his drums as hard as he can. Of course, he's playing rock, but he has no class at all. He just thinks fast chops and loudness can substitute feel. Travis Barker seems like one of those drummers who can only play loud music, when in reality the best musicians can play absolutely anything thrown at them. This is just my opinion, and I respect anybody else's thoughts about Barker. I just think he's a terrible example of overrating.
