I disagree with the above poster as I think that he is extremely overrated, but that is not Travis' fault, it is the people who talk about how good he is.
Running a clothing line most certainly does not make him a better drummer in any way lol. I mentioned that because Famous Stars and Straps is quickly becoming more and more popular everyday, and Travis is the mastermind behind it. More FSAS clothing = more recognition for Travis. Nor does Blink make him a better drummer. It's the fact that the three of them as a band are so successful at what they do, they have millions upon millions of fans.
