Re: Travis Barker
which is a good place to view all drummers well known enough to warrant their own thread here. they wouldn't be well known unless they did the job well. putting down any drummer who is on several records shows a lack of understanding and also reveals a certain jealousy. sometimes a drummer is simply told what to play and has to play what he is told. other times a drummer makes all the decisions. both are valid parts of the craft - with shades between. since we cannot know the actual process leading up to every finished product we cannot really stand in judgement. we can criticise to a degree but always with the humility of people who weren't there.
