Blink-182's Travis Barker is one of the most famous drummers of the new millennium thanks to his hardcore sensibility, skater aesthetic, hip-hop energy, pop appeal and reality TV-ready baby face — not to mention his ease working with EDM superstars or rappers, and DJ-ing in his spare time. It's a well-rounded attitude towards rhythm that elevates everything he does. "I can do beats all day long, and that's something that's been moving me.
