Vandalism[edit]

It looks like two anonymous users have vandalized this page recently. I'm not familiar with the article, so I don't know what's right, and what's not. Mithras6 20:24, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

the biography part is gone.. can someone add it back? Noobskater 14:45, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

I added back a lot of the missing content. I hope I didn't get rid of anything that was subsequently added after the vandalism or during. That wasn't my intent but it was really hard to tell what was valid and what was not. Downstream 21:54, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

There seems to be something wrong with the layout, the last couple of articles are placed within a previous chart. 02 June 2009

Unsourced information[edit]

If anyone has a reputable source for this information, please cite the source (Wikipedia:Citing_sources) and add it back if you want: Barker and Moakler were seen in Disneyland holding hands and cuddling. [citation needed] Downstream 01:54, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Fun fact: Source #11 for this page is a copy and paste of this Wikipedia page. Apparently, we cite ourselves for information now. --24.226.90.204 (talk) 19:26, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

El Caballero de la Salsa - there is no link or source that he played thi song — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.4.156.217 (talk) 21:54, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Genre[edit]

shouldn't travis' genre on the page include ska? i mean, he was in ska bands such as the aquabats and the suicide machines at one point, right?. therefore shouldn't that be included? im gonna add it in for now. (24.141.184.10 02:07, 20 March 2007 (UTC))

Music Videos[edit]

  • Does anyone know why he is in rap videos such as Throw Some D's. In that video, he is just standing around in a hood. He does nothing whatsoever, unless he supplies some drumming in the real song. HaLoGuY007 01:44, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

It's just popular in rap music to have the artists friends in the video, and as Travis Barker has links into the metal genre I'm guessing he's just friends with the artist. 16:36, 03 June 2008 (GMT) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.17.158.178 (talk)

Barker has links into the metal genre? Lolwut? Blink is closer to punk than metal, and to call them punk is a disservice to both punk and the band. Barker has nothing to do with metal at all... 2crudedudes (talk) 14:21, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Who helped him with drumming[edit]

If someone has a citation for this: "Travis's good friend, Brendan Taylor helped Travis to become more involved in drumming." please feel free to add it back with the proper reference. Downstream 16:32, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

MySpace links[edit]

Is there one too many MySpace links here? I am not sure this is in line with our external linking guidelines. Yamaguchi先生 04:27, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Travis Barker[edit]

Travis Barker in another language = vls:Travis Barker, please put in the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.30.59.151 (talk) 18:42, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

associated acts[edit]

In the associated acts, I can read "queens of the stone age", but I can't see anything about his participation on anything related with QOTSA. Maybe it has to be removed... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cynferdd (talkcontribs) 14:50, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

I noticed this as well, I am Queens fan and I have never read anything on him playing with Josh or any other members of the band. Stoner rock just doesn't seem like his style of music. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.203.136.253 (talk) 21:21, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

religon[edit]

what (if any) was his religous back round —Preceding unsigned comment added by 12.210.95.173 (talk) 21:59, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

I had heard that He was Latter Day Saint.. but had left.. see end of 1st life paragraph: http://listing-index.ebay.com/actors/Travis_Barker.html —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.21.61.52 (talk) 19:15, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Although like 6 died and i think 1 of them was Blink's DJ guy HE Did dIE . —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.226.134.142 (talk) 01:02, 26 September 2008 (UTC)


4 people died in the crash. Travis Barker was released from the hospital today (9/29/08) 68.158.200.210 (talk) 04:38, 30 September 2008 (UTC)s/u/e 9/29/08

This is the picture included in the news story. How can his neck be so long?90.134.178.236 (talk) 19:42, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Guitar Hero?[edit]

I think the article should prolly mention how he's playable in GH:WT.

I have no writing skills though, someone else will have to do it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.114.103.151 (talk) 02:33, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Formatting[edit]

There are a lot of formatting errors on the tables on this page. I'm not very good at fixing this cosmetic details... maybe someone else is? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Afuzzyllama (talkcontribs) 22:23, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

I removed the reference to the Rolling Stone Top 100 drummers list as it appears this "list" is really a hoax. There is no mention of it on Rolling Stone's site and the only version of it on the net seems to be this forum posting --BrianFG (talk) 06:00, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Plagiarism[edit]

In the "Reality television star and collaborations" section, there appears to be some plagiarism.

In particular the sentence, "Trying to blot out the guilt of giving his children a broken home, he consumed "excessive amounts" of prescription painkillers, marijuana and alcohol." From the original article: "Barker got divorced; trying to blot out the guilt of giving his children a broken home, he consumed “excessive amounts” of pills, weed and booze." http://rollingstoneindia.com/survival-of-the-snottiest/ KevinShapiroBoyOrphan (talk) 23:38, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

I grew up with Travis![edit]

Travis and I went to high school together. After class him and I would always go to Guitar Center and jam out for hours. We actually planned a drum-off battle for the high school talent show. Needless to say, he won. -ℳ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Solorman08 (talkcontribs) 18:47, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
