imo, travis is a hack. and the only reason people like him is because he ''looks'' cool while playing. if they could open their eyes past that, then he wouldnt have such a large fan base.
sure, he came from blink 182, but all i ever saw in them was a grown-up jonas brothers... all looks, not-so-great music IMO
lol are you really comparing them to the jonas brothers? (don't think the jonas brothers are past the "PG" type of lifestyle) and I would like to see you beat travis in a drum off. Then I'll respect your comments.
One other thing, it's not like Travis set out to be a solo artist, professional drummer. So the fact that he's as famous as he is....must mean he's doing something right, considering he's just the drummer for a punk rock band.
