BIOGRAPHY

Travis Barker was bornon 14 November 1975 in Fontana, California, American, is Musician. Not everyone with the drum sticks in the hands can boast of playing the instrument like Travis Barker! Recognized as ‘Punk's first superstar drummer’ by Rolling Stone magazine, he is the immaculate drumming star of the era, who reaffirmed the status of the music of the drums. A prodigious child, Barker’s association with the drums has been since he was four-years-old. As time passed, he only mastered the art and polished his skills to become at par with the world’s best drummers. Barker’s first outing as a drummer was for Feeble, a school band. The split of Feeble led him to explore more options. Eventually he found a place with The Aquabats. His career took a major turn when a chance inclusion as filler for Rayne in the band, Blink-182 proved to be the momentous occasion as he was soon roped in by the band. Record after record, the band gained much popularity as their songs became hit chartbusters. Apart from his association with the band, Barker has been a frequent performer and collaborator with hip-hop artists, the alternative rock band ‘+44’, the rap rock group ‘The Transplants’, and the alternative rock band ‘Box Car Racer’. In 2011, he even came out with a solo venture titled, ‘Give the Drummer Some’. In addition to the drumming he also owns a clothing company and a records label.
