He also learned how to play the piano and trumpet at the same time. For a short while, he joined the choir, but he had other goals in mind besides becoming a musician.

His dreams of being a skateboarder and surfer were constantly returning to the drums. A day before Barker started high school, his mother passed away. But she advised him to follow his dreams and pursue music.

He played drum set in the jazz band and snare drum in a marching band. He tried styles such as military and jazz rhythms, but he was most attracted to punk and hip-hop, and high-driving rhythms.

After graduating from high school, Barker performed with the band Snot and Feeble before joining Chad Larson’s ska-punk group, the Aquabats, in 1996. Travis recorded one album with the Aquabats in the same year, and the group embarked on a tour with Blink-182. Barker replaced the departing drummer for Blink-182, eventually taking over as the group’s regular drummer.

The band, along with other singles like “All the Small Things,” “What’s My Age Again?”, and “Adam’s Song,” shot to fame after the release of Barker’s first album with Blink-182, “Enema of the State,” which was released in June 1999. The music video for the album also won an MTV Video Music Award in 2000.

The band started an arena tour in the fall of 1999, but Travis had to postpone a few dates due to a broken finger. In the ensuing years, Barker collaborated with Blink-182 on five more albums: “Take Off Your Pants and Jacket,” “Blink-182,” “Neighborhoods,” “California,” and “Nine.”
