Hear the Drummer Get Wicked
While poking around online I stumbled across a mesmerizing video of one Travis Barker, formerly of mall-punk pioneers and official muzak providers for all Hot Topic retail locations Blink-182, going essentially ape shit on a drum kit while some radio friendly and mostly unintelligible rapper does his thing over the top of it all. Now I’m not a fan of Mr. Barker or any of his musical output, but I am a fan of ape-shit drummers, so I could give a good goddamn if he was responsible for paving the way for today’s emo plague. Drums are deceptively difficult to play (well), but hell, his routine isn’t really all that remarkable for any technical reason, it’s just furious. Soulja boy, indeed!
