Travis Barker will release his autobiography, Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums, on June 24 via William Morrow, according to Amazon.
Travis Barkerís soul-baring memoir chronicles the highlights and lowlights of the renowned drummerís art and his life, including the harrowing plane crash that nearly killed him and his traumatic road to recoveryóa fascinating never-before-told-in-full story of personal reinvention grounded in musical salvation and fatherhood.
After breaking out as the acclaimed drummer of the multiplatinum punk band Blink-182, everything changed for Travis Barker. But the dark side of rock stardom took its toll: his marriage, chronicled for an MTV reality show, fell apart. Constant touring concealed a serious drug addiction. A reckoning did not truly come until he was forced to face mortality: His life nearly ended in a horrifying plane crash, and then his close friend, collaborator, and fellow crash survivor DJ AM died of an overdose.
In this blunt, driving memoir, Barker ruminates on rock stardom, fatherhood, death, loss, and redemption, sharing stories shaped by decadesí worth of hard-earned insights. His pulsating memoir is as energetic as his acclaimed beats. It brings to a close the first chapters of a well-lived life, inspiring readers to follow the rhythms of their own hearts and find meaning in their lives.
There is no way that's the final cover, is it..? Either way this is going to be a GREAT read considering how much he went through. I would love to get into the head of someone who has rarely talked about any of it. He's one of my inspirations as such a caring and family oriented dude. (In my avatar with me).
The cover basically is Travis's style so it's fitting that it's the cover of his book. Look at Transplants, his solo releases, Dogs Eating Dogs art, the poster for that new tattoo & music festival he is kinda curating. This fits his style, even if it's not my thing
