Travis barker dating history

Travis Landon Barker (born November 14, 1975) is an American musician and producer, best known as the drummer for the rock band Blink-182.Barker has also performed as a frequent collaborator with hip hop artists, is a member of the rap rock group Transplants, founded the rock bands 44 and Box Car Racer, and most recently joined Antemasque and Goldfinger.De Longe, not wanting to pay for a studio drummer, simply asked Barker to step in and perform on the record, called Box Car Racer.The experiment became a full-time band and toured in 2002, which led to strained relations between De Longe and Hoppus.He was a frequent collaborator with the late DJ AM, and together they formed TRV$DJAM.Due to his fame, Rolling Stone referred to him as "punk's first superstar drummer." Barker, born in Fontana, California, began drumming at an early age.Companies such as DC Shoes and Zildjian cymbals have co-designed products in his name.

Travis had this reputation of being a guy who could sit down with a click track and no music and have the arrangement in his head and he could lay down the drum tracks in five, ten minutes for a song and then the band could play on top to him as if he was a drum machine.He has continued to work with rappers, releasing extended plays with Yelawolf and Asher Roth and Nottz, as well as with Blink-182 and the Transplants.Aside from drumming, he founded clothing company Famous Stars and Straps in 1999 and La Salle Records in 2004.However, Barker states that "I always migrated back to drums, though.That was the one direction that kind of felt like I was connected to and I could kind of understand.
