Re: why there are so many travis barker haters???
Yeah, I'd have to agree with the majority here. I don't hate him, just the ignorant following that surrounds him ( I don't even "hate" them per se). He's a creative guy for punk rock, a good showman, and he has some endurance. Can't fault him for that. I do think he is a little bit arrogant, though. I've seen a couple youtube videos that imply arrogance but I can't say for sure.
My opinion: Good drummer, but certainly not the best or one of the technical virtuosos.
