Default Re: Travis Barker

Travis is just another fast drummer-sure. I like him because not only is he humble, but he is so good at incorporating different genres of music into a rock perpesctive that it inspires me.


That's just my opinion, of course.

Default Re: Travis Barker

I'm not really into Blink 182, but I feel as if I have to defend Travis. I have heard way too many people slate him.

Many people in his situation (i.e. playing in a popular mainstream band whose fans are probably about 12-18 years old) could do so much less on the kit and they would still be successful. He is playing some well learnt chops and busting out solos at gigs, which not many other pop chart acts do. I also think that he is making a lot of young drummers (who may not really be exposed to 'good' drumming) learn more about drums, as you need to know some chops to play his stuff.

The rudiments he is doing on his page on this site are pretty good. Sure, he is fast, BUT he is precise too. I think he is a good drummer. He is no Vinnie Colaiuta, Dennis Chambers etc etc, but he is still good.

Respect is due I think.

ive heard of drummers using wrist straps to apply tension if their wrist are hurting when they play, that could be what hes doing.

wristwrap that you talk about mcgee seems to be the one for tendonitis[spellcheck, i really dont know how to write it]. There is the same wrap for leg too. Drums6040, maybe he wears his own brand of wristband??(i know he has a clothing line)

yea i know, i think he might have that, i have their urithra (sp) cronicles II and it said something about he has troubles with his wrist some times (tendonitis) and keeping that tension can reduce it.

and yea he does have FSAS wrist bands that he makes, but that cant be what this guy is talkin about that is too obvious. ive also seen blink's bass player Mark Hoppus, wear the wrist straps maybe for tendonitis aswell...

I'm actually a fan of Travis, but...you can't base his so called 'musical diversity' on this video :)...

If it was some kind of jazz groove/solo, i would've bought it. But i didn't really think anything special about his drumming in the vid.

while it was cool seeing him play with the country guys - and especially in a tribute to buck owens - i'm not sure if 2 and 4 rimshots was his best example of musical diversity.

that being said...he is a terriffic drummer - find the youtube stuff with him doing marching snare drum tricks in the studio...great chops.

I don't think the theatrics fit very well, but what could we expect? Very basic stuff as opposed to "diverse".

Everything about him in that video seems out of place other than the drumming which is nothing special. Bet the other guys were like "Glad we don't have to make eye contact!" ;)

swinging triplets on the high hat plus a snare on the "and" plus quarter note bass drum does not necessarily constitute diversity, but for travis it's something different....most country drummers do not embellish anyway, so no way would we see his blink 182 chops in that setting.

Yeah, he's playing what he always plays, just slower. He still looks way too goofy for me when he plays too.

Kudos to Travis for playing with some of the coolest country guys on the planet. Dwight Yoakam is a funky dude for sure, and I bet it was his idea to get Travis on there.

Quck! Who was the best musician on stage?

If you didn't answer Brad Paisley then y'all need to broaden your musical tastes a bit.

The slow shuffle part was played horribly, with those swiping hi-hat strokes. The kit itself was completely out of place sonically (not to mention visually, but hwo cares).

That was just really weird. Did anyone else notice that it wasn't rehearsed very well either? One song didn't start together (Travis came in late) and another one didn't end together (Travis stopped and then Billy Gibbons played some dumb embellishment riff at the end).

And if Reba has any more plastic surgery, her face might actually just fall off.

Can't get the vid to download past 30 sec, all I see is Reba talking.
Brad Paisley is a fantastic guitarist, wish I could see Travis playing. My hat's off to him for doing this.
I hate dial up!!!

i havnt actually got to see it yet cuase im at work, but i can imagin the head banging that he does, and thats cool to me, he gets into his stuff no matter how slow or fast, at least he feels his music and isnt some dude sitting up there with no emotion like you see some people do.

yea i think everyone, as soon as they see a travis barker thread, starts geting ready to insult his performance... i really dont see what he did bad, i mean it wasnt amazing but he wasnt trying to be, people talk about him being to busy on the drums and then he calms down and does a country song, and then people claim its not busy or diverse enough...its like a catch 22 all the time he cant win for losing.

When I see him play here I think of Animal of the Muppet Show. So many unnecessary movements.

Yep a lot of people jump at the opportunity to mock Travis Barker. Face it, it sounded good, how he looks when he plays has nothing to do with the music itself.. if he has to sideswipe to feel a slow country beat, who cares?

Hey I'm not bashing him on his playing. It fitted the music perfectly....he just looked alot different than all the others.....headbanging, mohawk, it's all good.
