Busy Travis Forms Another Band
Workaholic BLINK-182 drummer TRAVIS BARKER has formed another side project band with Texas rap sensation PAUL WALL.
Just days after the drummer debuted his latest project with ADAM 'DJ AM' GOLDSTEIN at California's Inland Invasion concert, he has announced another venture, EXPENSIVE TASTES, with Wall and fellow TRANSPLANTS star ROB ASTON.
As well as Blink-182, the Transplants and his DJ AM project, Barker also features in the line-ups for BOX CAR RACER and PLUS44.
He tells MTV News, "It's kind of nice having this time to work with artists that you're big fans of."
The busy punk star is also expanding his clothing label, Famous Stars and Straps, and adding to his talents by becoming an unlikely hip-hop producer.
He adds, "It (hip-hop) has always been a passion of mine. I've been listening to hip-hop since I was listening to music. It was always crazy to be in punk rock bands and rock bands and always be listening to soul or R+B or hip-hop - stuff I didn't play, so it's exciting to work with artists."
