Yeah he has played for the game, rhianna, Expensives tastes, Rich boy, Pharrell, etc...plus he also played a country thing at some country awards show..he isn't versatile is complete bs

It's not so much that he is making a realistic sound fx with his instrument. Even I stuck with the drum long enough to learn how to make the sound of gunfire...and who didn't look nervously around the first time they heard the French Horn sound like an elephant?

No, for this, its the fact that the volume and the timing of the knock-effect occurs at the point in the song where the kid inside the room needed someone to show up at the door and knock, which they did, and yet he still missed it because the music was too loud for him to detect the knock..

Had he done it in a song about raping a 23,000 year old Ice princess over a bloodstained field of self-sacrificed virgins (silly Norwegian death metal bands) then it's not interesting in the least bit. Had he done it during a "quiet" spot in the song, it becomes an obvious trick and loses a large measure of its eventual effect.

But right there, the simple song becomes something much more allegorical by not only comparing the loneliness of a suicidal teenager to the loneliness of a young band on the road but also in demonstrating how the isolation between parents and their children or between teenagers and their peers (or between a band and their audience – tre` PF) might not be as explicit as it appears.

It's possible that the isolation is the result of one player reaching out in a manner inconsistent with the expectation of the other party. The outsider felt like the unanswered knock was a sign that Adam didn’t wish to be bothered. The insider didn’t hear the knock because he has his music on 11, expecting his potential savior to break the door down rather than politely knock first and then leave when the knock went unanswered.

The eventual destruction of the distressed party, be it Adam in the song or Blink-182 on the road or Pink Floyd at, well, any moment Roger Water’s opens his mouth could have been stopped had both sides learned to communicate effectively in the first place. At that point, the tragedy of the result is markedly underscored by the fact that a missed knock on the door, or a 10-month tour, or the demands of an audience conflicting with an internal struggle with the death of your father did not need to become the proverbial “straw that broke the camels back”.

Something like that anyway….

And that is why using that technique, right there in Adam’s Song, allows the snare to transcend being a mere instrument and become an affectation of the very story it helped to create.

I find Travis Barker slightly boring, I don't see anything really unique in his style of drumming like I do with other drummers. Ok so he has been in a marching band, but then again, his technique against drummers such as Jojo Mayer and Virgil Donati differs completely! I think Travis Barker is a very adverage drummer.

Sorry for comparing but I couldnt find any other way of putting it!

I have to agree. Just because he has been in marching band doesnt mean he is any better of a drumset player. Drumset and Marching snare require totally different techniques to get what is best from the instrument.

Travis Barker is good. He is good for the music he plays. I can be honest and say that its not my type of drumming style, but I do respect for his skills.
The reason he has a tv show is all about $$$... Kids love Blink 182, hes married (or was) to a model, so Networks like Mtv will do anything and everything to create buzz around a tv showt hat will make them money, and gain the interest of kids. Why not there smart!
Drummers, musicians, all over the world know the likes of Gadd, Chambers, Weckl, etc.
They do not need a tv show to make them popular...

Listen to anything by Jojo Mayer - who hasn't studied marching drumming, then listen to Travis. Then delete your stupid posts.

He's made remixes and worked with artists from avril lavigne to Rihanna to Paul Wall. Hes even played with some country artists (look it up on youtube). Lately barkers been turning normal rap songs into rock remixes. I lovveeeee hearing his rock remixes. Theyre so tight

for me, he's a good drummer, not an excellent drummer..
i believe he is overrated.. but.. he's gone places most drummers would love to be... and in his style he is not that bad.. the guy has my respect, but i don't admire his drumming skills as i do with drummers like vinnie.

Actually if you take off your TB worship glasses you'd see what Brittc89 wrote is very true....

I played for my college pep band at the football games and when I first joined I was very intimidated by the incredible technique the snare drummers had....however when it was time for the teacher to decide who got the number one drum seat on the kit he picked me cause their feel and coordination was really lacking....

He's a good drummer, I think his drumming was the driving force of blink-182 more than the guitar or bass playing. He's probably the most talented member of blink 182.

Yesterday, my friend asked me to learn part of one of his solos, and one of his 'remixes' of an existing drum track.
I watched the videos, and came to the conclusion that Barker relies purely on speed and thrashing big cymbals, than actually having any talent.

Rubbish, he's woodshedded and paid his dues like all the other successful drummers. Try actually transcribing note for note his parts and play them as he plays them. These parts aren't easy. He has fantastic rudimental ability.

Definately.

You know jones.. I wonder sometimes how people can think guys like TB have no talent? I guess they just haven't become familiar with the foundations of drumming or else they would get it. I'm not really a Barker fan, but man.. that dude can play.

I like Travis Barker! He is a very good, if not one of the best out & out pop/rock drummers that is lucky enough to be living the dream. On the other side of the spectrum, the likes of Neal Peart and Thomas Lang et al are both incredibly talented technicians of their instrument who cannot possibly be compared with the likes of TB. And I admire Travis for that reason, that he isn't the best technical drummer in the world, but plays for the music.

I have been impressed just recently with the amount of young talented drummers but I fear there is too much emphasis on rudiments and technique. I do understand you need technique but it seems to be becoming like a science. I think it should be about creating drama, giving people an adrenalin rush. That’s why I loved what Travis Barker did with Blink 182! In my opinion drumming is an art, not a science. It’s there to entertain. Listen to TB with 'Rock Show' and he is so groovy, it’s simple but it moves you.

Barker isn't just a heavy hitter or a speed demon. He is funky; he has much more finesse than people seem to credit him for these days. It should be about the music.

Well man, it's not about us liking or disliking him. Boo McAfee, the founder of WFD says he's a very nice guy. So I'm pretty certain I would like him if I met him. But everyone here is allowed to discuss his music if that's our wish. I mean why would ALL people come here to worship him? Isn't a fan site where you go for that? The old Blink 182 is site still up, right? I know it was a few months ago.

I do want to pick at your claim that he is some kind of innovator for mixing a flavor of marching music into his own genre. Actually people have been doing that with all kinds of music for over 100 years, and New Orleans second line drummers were incorporating the marching thing into the earliest attempts at punk/pop in the early 1980s, or when Barker was in the 1st grade. So that just didn't happen. This was followed by the same thing occuring with hip hop in the mid 1980s. Again, no.

Besides, it's time we put this mighty Barker marching band career to rest. Man, he marched maybe one full season his sophmore year in high school. That's it ...nothing more, including that fabled drum corps career that a lot Barker fans go on and on about, that also never happened. Less than one season doesn't even match up to the collective preseason marching band camps that most of us Americans go through in a normal high school career. To say that this drink of water changed him as a drummer or altered the direction of a significant drum style within an important musical evolution is beyond ridiculous, and from what I hear about Barker, would really embarrass him.

One of the reasons you don't hear anymore new urban legends about Travis Barker is because he supposedly cooled down those press agents he used to have, who were actually the ones exaggerating that stuff to begin with. . In truth, he almost had a real issue with the story about how he was practicing for the WFD world finals and planned to win it. A lot of those competitors were really lickin' their chops over that one because that absolutely wasn't going to work out well.

Then it turns out that he was this nice, cool guy who wasn't pushing any of that stuff. He had nothing to do with it. Still despite his curtailing the new stories, these old ones/ like his being a marching band demon/innovator, continue with no end in sight, because so many of his fans just won't believe the real truth.

The real truth is that is overrated.. so what? hes quite good at what he does.. thats my point.. in fact he is the best on the business.. pop punk.. hiphop remix's..
i'm a fan.. yeah.. but i dont think hes te greatest drummer ever.. not even close.. of course not.. we would all be lost if he was.. so what? hes good and ive heard on his albuns fills and gooves i have never heard before and i actually listen to those greats cats.. tony williams, rich, collaiuta, all the guys at the modern drummer festivals.. (just to say that i'm not a non-drummer who only listen to THAT guy)
thats all. sorry if i didnt express myself correctly.. =?

My input on this obviously popular topic. I really like his sound and I think he would sound really great in the right situation. It's unfortunate that he plays "pop-punk" because I think he could do really well in a progressive context.

I have a very unoriginal friend that went through a travis barker phase, even tried starting his own clothing line like him, hes a good drummer,(barker not the friend) but in my experience everyone I've met that likes him say he's a good drummer because they like the way he dresses, has his own show etc.,

What I'm trying to say is it's not the guy i have a problem with, its most of his fans, or mtv people in general. I hate how stupid people can be with stuff like this. The guy desevres what he has but its all these freakin little barkertards running around saying he owned so and so's favorite drummer that pisses alot of serious drummers off.

and another question, how come when you give your opinion it's called giving your two cents, but when someones wants it they say pennie for your thoughts?

Travis is the drummer everyone loves to hate.

As for his ability, he's extremely talented. And maybe he plays a lot of fast around the tom stuff, that most of us could do. But i'm sure Travis could tear up the jazz/latin as well, and not to mention having some monster chops.

Maybe its becuase thier is a difference between "opinion" and "thoughts."

"Opinons" are a personal view: the view somebody takes about a certain issue, especially when it is based solely on personal judgment. "Opinons" are usually a fairly well thought out view of a specific case wether truly informed or not. The individual has dedicated some time to the thought therefore forming an "opinion." therefore its worth more to the individual giving it. 2 cents

"Thoughts" are the process of considering: the process of applying the mind to thinking about a particular person or subject. An opinion usually isn't formed by this point of time in the thought process, but its getting there. Hence, only worth a penny.

Now, I have no idea if I'm right.. but it sounds good.

he is a very talented drummer, however i do believe your right, mtv and the hordes of emo fans know him for his clothing line or for his cars, he doesnt get enough credit as a drummer

I admire him for his tattoos, but I'm not sure if that counts as one of the right reasons or not.

I haven't heard one thing from Barker that would suggest I would enjoy listening to him in a jazz setting...I don't understand how the internet, with the world at everyone's fingertips, is developing more and more people who have no idea what they're talking about. This isn't even an issue of "jazz snob" whatever. This is an issue of people's fans bragging/riling-people-up from behind their keyboards.

I'm too scared to admit it? What is this, 3rd grade?

I doubt Barker would *suggest* it, and yet some of his fans think he is infalable. That's all well and good, but it begs me to ask you: What do you think is good jazz?
