Travis Barker Talks New Blink-182 Music

Chris Payne, writing at Billboard:

There’s a song that we refer to as “Paris” that’s really awesome. It was actually a beat I made for Juice WRLD and before I ever got in the studio with him, I played it randomly, and Mark [Hoppus] said, “Oh what are you working on?” They were like, “Whoa, we really like this.” And it morphed into a Blink song. It’s probably our favorite right now.

Travis Barker’s 1967 Cadillac Eldorado Headed To Auction

Sam McEachern, writing a GM Authority:

The Blink 182 drummer bought this extensively modified Eldorado from well-known lowrider builder John D’Agostino, who built it at his Celebrity Kustoms shop in Discovery Bay, California. The list of modifications are too long to go over completely, but it has shaved door handles, an intricate custom ‘fade’ paint job, a custom upholstered interior and much, much more.

More photos of the Cadillac can be found on Sotheby’s website.

Korn Demoing With Travis Barker and John Feldmann

Korn have been working with Travis Barker and John Feldmann on new music:

We’re doing it all over. We’ve been to Nashville a few times, we’ve done a lot in L.A. We actually wrote with John Feldmann, too, for the demos. Travis Barker laid the temporary drums for some, and that was cool. We’ve known John Feldmann since ’87 — he was in Electric Love Hogs. So we’re writing with different people. We grabbed [producer] Nick Raskulinecz, and he’s very hands on and such a fan of music. It’s not a job or a gig to him.

Travis Barker Says Nerve Damage Caused by Medical Malpractice

TMZ:

In the lawsuit — obtained by TMZ — Barker claims in June he went to The Medical Imaging Center in Santa Monica to receive an MRI as part of his routine checkup for his upcoming tour. Barker was to be sedated before the procedure, but technicians were unable to find a vein, sticking him at least 40x times in the process with a dirty needle and giving him staph. He’s suing the medical office.

Travis Barker Involved in Car Accident

Travis Barker of Blink-182 was involved in a car accident with a school bus on Friday, July 13th:

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ no children were on the bus and Travis was not at fault.

After the crash Travis was walking around and did not appear seriously injured, although he did seem dazed. There were passengers in Travis’ car, including his son. We do not know their condition, but the collision was serious enough for Barker’s air bags to deploy.

Travis Barker, John Feldmann, and Jason Butler Talk The Fever 333

Forbes (sorry for having to link to this user hostile website) sat down with Travis Barker, John Feldmann, and Jason Butler to talk about The Fever 333 and their upcoming music, label, and much more:

This is the first and only interview that Barker, Feldmann and The Fever 333 have done collectively. With their debut EP being released this Friday, here, in their words, Barker, Feldmann and the trio reveal all.

And:

I stayed close to Jason, then when Jason was working at Shinola in Venice selling watches he came to the house and had a come to Jesus talk with me. “What do I do?” So I kind of filed it away in the back of my mind. Three months later Travis and I signed a couple of pop/punk bands and we started developing stuff together. It came to the forefront, Jason Aalon is the greatest frontman probably still relevant, but he is working at a watch store.

There’s lots of new information about this project and how it came together in here.
