Re: Travis Barker
To everyone about the jazz:
Travis Barker supposedly studied a lot of jazz. I don't mean to say he plays jazz; I'm saying he has a jazzy style. I've heard a good porion of his beats and they have direct roots in jazz.
For example, Mick Mars of Motley Crue is not a Blues guitarist, but his stryle is directly rooted in blues. The guitarist of my band played Dr. Feelgood clean, and it was indeed very bluesy. I'm not saying Travis Barker is a jazz drummer, I'm saying that like Mick Mars, his style is derived from jazz. I haven't really studied any of his parts because, as I previously stated, I don't like any of his music. I'm well aware he isn't a jazz drummer.
