i mean he is alright. im not talking down on him but he is basic. and hits every thing way to hard and looks like a tard.

im sorry but just to over rated. like EVH no skill but alot of ego


I agree with you on that one he looks like he was just banging the shit out of his
ride cymbal and there was no skill just simple beats.

just cause there simple doesnt make him bad if he would have dont anymore you would have said he had overplayed


He seem more like a begginer to my eyes than a superstar drummer with 20++ year career...he doesn't look or play like someone with a lot of experience i think


so just because he hasnt been making music as a career for 20 plus years means he is a begginer? im sorry but that is a load of bull crap, there are plenty of people that have not made a career out of music but have been playing for a long time, that are very very good. and, he has a lot of expeirence, and he looks like it, he is a very good drummer.

I didn't say he is a beginner.I say that he has much promotion for nothing.There are much better drummers ,and i can't see his experience.I don't want to fight ,i want just to post my opinion.I am nobody to judge his work but to my ears he is the last choice.I like his hair only...

maybe i'm the only one here, but i absolutely love it when drummers overplay! i think travis is an awesome drummer, i got a little sick of hearing about him for awhile there but its settled down.

that video though was disappointing. it would of sounded much better if he played with some feeling rather than hitting everything really hard.

This is one of those comments that screams of inexperience.

I love it when drummers play for the song instead of themselves. :)

thats good and dandy too but i can't deny a drummer who wants to play beats that are as fun to listen to as they are to play.

take carter beauford or dennis chambers for example, even though they play for the song they still add a touch of something more. i'm not asking for a solo within every song, but a drummer who isn't afraid to show off what hes got to offer.

and pop music sucks unless its from 1960-80

That isn't overplaying. That's called playing tastefully. Overplaying is when you put a 32nd note paradiddle-ratama-flam fill under an important lyrical part of a ballad, as one example, to please your own ego on stage. It's also the guy who plays a fill every four measure in every song like he's not even listening to what's going on. To quote Omar Hakim, sometimes the fill that goes a million miles around the toms fits and sometimes it doesn't. If you're just a drummer you'll play any and everything that comes to mind to please yourself. If you're a musician, you play for the music and let your ego take a back seat. You choose little spots to shine instead of shoving it down people's throats the entire time you're playing. Overplaying is why so many otherwise good bands don't go anywhere and why so many otherwise good players can't get or keep a gig.

Yeah, successful people are always over-rated. For that fact, so is working hard to achieve success. We hate those people because we're not them! :roll:

i wouldnt say he is hard working when he just picks up his phone and gets people to do things for him.

whats really funny is how he is a big hot shot and he didnt realy do any thing to get to where he was. he played in a underated ska band and then joined the worst band in history second to led zep.

and blinks old drumm put travis to shame

What? Dude, c'mon. When Blink would tour and the two other guys were out partying, Travis was on the bus practicing rudiments. He used to play in drum corps. And do you honestly think it's easy touring the way they have or working as much as he does? Dude, you just sound jealous as hell. :D
