One specific set of drums is an Orange County Drums & Percussion set Barker called the “Evel Knievel Kit,” which he played in the music video for blink-182’s “Adam’s Song.” “It’s almost too special to me and it feels weird to drag it back out on tour or to even play it in the studio. It’s really a timepiece and I can’t wait to see who ends up with it,” Barker says.
I absolutely work out every day, with the exception of one day a week. My workouts can fluctuate from boxing and high intensity interval training to Muay Thai—which I can’t do right now because I recently tore a tendon in my hand. (I have to have surgery in a few weeks.) Some days could just be a run, 6 or 7 within an hour. Recently I’ve been working out with Don-A-Matrix, and that has been intense.
Barker, who’s been a vegetarian since he was a teenager and went full vegan to refocus and heal his body shortly after surviving a 2008 plane crash, says it was also important for him to create a product line that reflected his values. To that note, everything in Barker Wellness is vegan and cruelty-free. Everything is also made with natural ingredients, from soothing cucumber extract in the pain relief cream, to ashwagandha and reishi mushroom extracts in the recovery tincture.
Barker says he spent hours with researchers to learn about dosages and how different cannabinoids react with the body, before narrowing down the product line to things people around him would actually use. “My son is 17 and he likes to use the pain relief cream if he’s working out, like boxing or jumping rope or doing Muay Thai,” Barker says. “The cream is so good for when your body is feeling sore.”
