Description

The fascinating never-before-told-in-full story of personal reinvention grounded in musical salvation and fatherhood.

Travis Barker's soul-baring memoir chronicles the highlights and lowlights of the renowned drummer's art and his life, including the harrowing plane crash that nearly killed him and his traumatic road to recovery. 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 decades' 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 listeners to follow the rhythms of their own hearts and find meaning in their lives.

Overall it’s a good book

It’s a great book full of stories from Travis Barker. The narrator does make the story difficult to follow if you aren’t paying attention. Also a mega let down that Travis didn’t narrate it himself. Overall I would recommend the book to anyone that has followed any of his career

The narration was painful at best. It's KILLING me

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Maybe it gets better, but I am at chapter 4 and honestly do not want to continue listening. I presume it would have been better if read by the actual author. (MAYBE)

Personally I rate all memoirs less when the author doesn't narrate it themselves. It just makes it feel lazy, somewhat entitled, and like paying full price for dollar store value.
So far, the return on investment is too low for my taste.

***I DO HOWEVER hope this book gets better!*** Currently, it's boring as all hell and extremely presuming... just because you have fame, doesn't mean people want to hear pointless drivel that doesn't promote the actual story line.

What didn’t you like about Cary Hite’s performance?

I don't know anything about the narrator, and he could quite possibly be really good at his performances otherwise. This book however, he missed the mark, a lot. It was confusing transitions between characters, and he never embodied the true energy of the author. Maybe it's because the book (SO FAR) is most definitely lacking any intellectual writing and feels "middle-school-level-literature" at best.

Any additional comments?

I AM ONLY ON CHAPTER 4 --- This COULD redeem itself. (Just feels like an impossible feat)

Essential for any Travis Barker fan

Any additional comments?

I took my 23&15 year old sons to see Blink 182 a few years ago and loved it! Music choices in the car with my boys can be a challenge but Blink is a band we can all agree on. I learned a lot about Travis from this book. It's amazing that Travis survived not only the plane crash but all of the physical pain that accompanied it. Also finding out how humble and down to earth Travis is just makes him even more likable to me. I definitely recommend spending a credit on this book. The only thing I wasn't excited about was the narrator. His performance wasn't bad but something about his voice and tone made me think of state farm commercial's. IDK maybe it's just me but I think it would have been easier to listen to if someone else had narrated it.

Not the best

I lost interest in this a few chapters in. The way it was written I would have thought a child wrote it. He started off on one subject and two sentences in he talked about something that had nothing to do with it and then went right back to the subject he started with. I'm surprised it was accepted to be published with the way it was written.

Can A Drummer Get Some

This is such a captivating story. I couldn’t stop listening. I’m a 37 yr old drummer from NH, was in marching band in high school, and moved to Seattle to pursue playing in rock bands which is where I reside today. Lots of Travis’s early days of drumming, I can relate to. I was a huge fan of TRL and Blink 182. Many times on the kit, I’ve played along to Blink records and Boxcar Racer, always to be worn out at the end. His beats are fast, catchy, and so well developed. The world needs more Travis Barker’s because drummers are the best. Thanks to Travis for bringing this story to light with the good and the bad. It all makes him the good dude he is today.

Good Story

I heard this autobiography recommended on a podcast. I know who Travis Barker is, but not a follower or anything. I found his story very interesting and a good listen….Once you push through and get used to the horrible narration, that is. Wish he would have self narrated or they had found someone more of his style.

Narrator Ruined the Experience

This was a great story & I’m a fan of Travis Barker and his drumming style, But the narrator who read this book was Terrible! He is All Wrong for this part , should have tested & found someone who can spell & read and pronounce the words & bands he Tried to speak about , the guy sounded very clueless on what he was doing & talking about.
