I’ve listened to Blink-182 since pretty much forever. I love drums and Travis Barker is #3 on my list behind Mick Fleetwood and Taylor Hawkins, both of who I have gushed about in previous posts. Travis, however, just happens to be cute while drumming. I saw one of those little 3 inch dolls on Instagram a few days ago and now it’s on my Christmas/birthday list.
I read Travis’ book, “Can I Say” a couple of years ago (because I like reading the memoirs of rock stars) and it was wild. He’s been through a lot- I said “wow” more than once. I don’t know how his arms still function because he goes so hard on the drums, he plays with so much passion. His son, Landon, is getting into the music scene. Is anyone surprised? I’m not.
Okay..enough about Travis, because I could go on about him all day.
I picked the song “I Miss You” for this week.
“Hello there the angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim
Of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack and Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
And we’ll have Halloween on Christmas
In the night we’ll wish this never ends
We’ll wish this never ends”
It’s a bit dark, but basically, it’s about a man being in a very dark time in his life but he knows that the woman in his life loves him- she wants to love him through it. She’s in the background of the dark spots in his life, trying to bring him into the light.
They try to make things look good and wish the good times would come back and never go away. (Confession: I had to look up the lyrics for the Jack and Sally part because I didn’t quite get it but once I did, it made a lot of sense. Thanks, Google.)
These guys are so talented and I’d love to see them in their Las Vegas residency.
