Travis Barker Does Mall Signing in Orange to Promote his Solo Debut
Who remembers that Blink-182's tattooed drummer Travis Barker is a real musician? After the Meet the Barkers fiasco and his near-death experience with DJ AM, he's coming to The Block at Orange to sign copies of his debut solo album, Give the Drummer Some. Preview the sneery rap stylings of the first single, "Can a Drummer Get Some," after the jump.
It sounds like the album could either be an all-over-the-place disaster or a total hit: Not only did Barker collaborate with Linkin Park's singer Chester Bennington, Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor, Snoop Dogg, BOB, Lil Wayne, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and Slash on his solo debut, he also produced the album with the Neptunes and DJ Khalil.
The meet and greet will be held at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 23. The first 300 fans to buy the album at Tilly's at The Block at Orange (near Off Broadway Shoes, 20 City Boulevard West, Orange) will get a wristband for the meet and greet and autograph signing.
