Travis Landon Barker, the drummer for Plus 44, started drumming when he was four years old. When he was 18 he joined the punk/ska band, The Aquabats. While on a tour in 1998, blink-182 was in need of a drummer to sub for the rest of their tour. The skilled drummer that he is, he learned the set in 2 hours. He recorded drums for blink-182 on Enema of the State, Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, blink-182 (self-titled), and their live album The Mark, Tom and Travis Show (The Enema Strikes Back). Travis has been apart of several side projects including Boxcar Racer, The Transplants, Expensive Tastes and most recently TRVSDJAM with DJAM. He has released severel very well received drum remixes on Youtube, most notably the Soulja Boy one. Barker has been married and divorced twice (Melissa Kennedy and Shanna Moakler). This heavily tatooed musician is also the founder of the clothing company Famous Stars and Straps. Travis Barker is one of the many merging musicians to embrace video games as a legitimate outlet for music. On September 20th, 2008, Travis and DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) survived a plane crash that killed four (Travis' assistant, bodyguard and the two pilots). Travis is currently recovering from second and third degree burns to his torso and lowerbody that doctors say could take up to a year to fully heal.
