Barker was born on November 14, 1975, in Fontana, California. When Barker was four, his mother got him his first drum kit, which he would keep until he was fifteen.
Barker began taking drum lessons at the age of five with a drummer named Michael Mai, who introduced him to a variety of performing techniques. He also started taking trumpet lessons about this time. Barker learned to play the piano in junior high and briefly tried singing, joining the madrigals men’s and women’s choir.
In addition, Barker had non-musical ambitions, such as being a professional surfer and skateboarder. Barker, on the other hand, claims that “I always migrated back to drums.”
That was the one route that felt related to me and that I could understand. I could express myself better through my drums than any other instrument.“
What business does Travis Barker own?
Travis began dabbling in fashion and launched his own clothing line, Famous Stars and Straps, in 1999, inspired by punk rock and rap music. Kim Kardashian, Eminem, Machine Gun Kelly, and Fergie have all been sighted wearing the brand, so I wouldn’t say it’s doing too badly.
