Re: Travis Barker
I am also new at the forum but i already read this discussion and want to show you my point of view.
I think you can't just say travis barker is a good or bad drummer. he is an outstanding drummer compared to the majority and is definitly doing a great job at blink. the grooves are not very difficult but does that make them bad? I think that simple grooves and simple riffs are a part of punk music because that makes it possible for everybody to play it.
somewhere on this page it is said that " the drummer makes or breaks a band" and in travis barkers case he definitly makes the band and thats what its all about.
I also think that not the difficulty or the speed are important to make a good groove it is only important that your drumming fits into the song or the style of music you play.
see you around bucks
