Travis Barker In Side Project Shocker!

By paul

Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker is to enlist two friends for a side project whilst Blink 182 take a break next year.
Travis told Rolling Stone: “After we do Europe next year, we have some time off, so I’d like to have a little band that I can tour with when Blink’s off the road.”
Barker is considering enlisting two friends from his hometown in Fontana, California.
“They’re tattoo artists that I grew up playing with,” he said without naming names.
“Very Minutemen and Fugazi-ish, with a touch of the Refused,” he said.
“I’m really into the Minutemen and Firehose. I loved bands like that who are a little bit experimental. The Minutemen played funk and they played fusion and they played punk and country, so [this band] would be a fun experimental project. I don’t want to be in a side project to be popular. I just want to play music and have fun, so it probably won’t be the most radio-friendly or commercial-friendly music.” Barker, who appears on drums in the new video for P. Diddy’s “Bad Boy for Life,” has also been asked to play on Xzibit’s new album.
