Background and Age

Travis Landon Barker was born on November 14, 1975 in Fontana, California. He is the child of Randy and Gloria Barker. While his father was a technician by profession, his mom looked after the children. When he was four, his mother gave him his at first drum set, which was the only one he would have until he was fifteen. He started taking drum exercise lessons at age five with a drummer named Michael Mai, who opened the energetic Barker to a wide scope of playing styles.

Career and Net Worth

He earned his first jump forward in music history in 1998 when he had enrolled to fill in on the drums for the punk rock band, Blink-182. Strains between Scott Raynor, the main drummer of the band, and DeLonge and Hoppus turned to be a positive for Barker as he peacefully replaced Raynor. All through 1998, he continued playing for Blink-182. He recorded the drum tracks at Chick Corea's Mad Hatter Studios in January 1999. With Jerry Finn's assistance who cleaned the albums and the sound, the trio released an album in June 1999. The band's three singles titled, 'What's My Age Again?', 'All The Small Things' and 'Adam's Song' were genuine blockbusters.

In July 2019, Blink 182 asked prevalent rapper Lil Wayne to go on tour with them but it appears as if it was an awful match. Some audience members have said that the rapper is bothered by the tour. On one visit at the Jiffy Lube Live venue in Bristow, Virginia, a touch of those in participation tweeted that Lil Wayne essentially played 20 minutes before leaving the stage and exhibiting that he might be done with the tour for good.
