Re: why there are so many travis barker haters???
do not hate the guy. i think he is a great drummer w/ some great chops, cool ideas that mesh great w/ punk, rap, DJ scratching & other break-beat type stuff. the only critical thing i can say is that he needs to give up smoking pot & looking obviously stoned in 1/2 the print ads he is in.
i do hate his troll / fans that post on youtube.com. find any popular / hi-ranked video of Vinnie, Bonham, Peart, etc. at least one of the comments will be "this drummer sucks compared to TB" and so forth as a flame war starts for no reason.
