There are a number of reasons as to why Travis Barker is my idol. I’d start by saying his drumming is simply fantastic. I love his style, speed and passion. To me, he seems down to earth for a celebrity.
If you haven’t seen Travis Barker drum, click here. He has a marching band style to his drumming that I love. I feel like marching band drumming is fundamentally challenging, you have to be disciplined to be talented at it.
This last weekend, I got the opportunity to meet Travis. He was doing a book signing for his new book “Can I Say” Living large, cheating death, & drums, drums, drums. I just started reading it this week.
Travis signed my book, shook my hand and took a picture with me. I couldn’t have asked for more. The 3 hours I waited in line was worth it.
