Yeah, not the greatest drummer ever but does blink blow up as big as they did without the creativity he brought into the band? I mean I love Dude Ranch but Travis was what they needed. Hell, the self-titled record definitely wouldn't exist without Travis joining. People need to get over this constant need to compare this drummer to that drummer, this album sounds like a mix of this album and this album, this part in this song sounds like this part, etc etc, blah blah blah. I'm not gonna lie I enjoyed music more before I subjected myself to the constant breakdowns of every single little thing that the internet brings.
Sorry for the rant, but people just need to enjoy what they enjoy and let the stuff that annoys them pass them by. I haven't encountered a drumming thread on here that claims someone to be better than someone else.
