Aussie festival drummer issues are getting weirder.

As we reported last week, A-list drummers Travis Barker, Charlie Benante, and Dave Lombardo have pulled out of the Soundwave Festival in Australia, and it appears things got heated up in the Twitterverse between Travis Barker and the festival promoter.

Vater Releases Gospel Sticks

Looks like gospel drumming is everywhere we turn these days. After a wonderful night at the Teddy Campbell clinic at Memphis Drum Shop Tuesday (review coming on this week’s show), looks like today that Vater has released several models of gospel sticks.

“I hate planes,” Travis says. “My biggest fear ever is to be involved in a plane crash, so when that happened … well, I’m just thankful to be alive! I’m just grateful to be here at all.”
