As Travis Barker of Blink-182 prepared for his all-star performance at the Grammys on Sunday, he let Rolling Stone behind the scenes to document his day. Here, he stops for a photo at the entrance of the red carpet.

"Its always an honor to play at the Grammys," Barker says. "I couldn't think of better company to perform with. I was blessed to be able to take the stage with LL Cool J, Z Trip, Chuck D and Tom Morello."
