Travis Barker and Soundwave Promoter Lash Out on...

Posted by: Jason Tate (02/22/13)
Well, there was certainly some drama last night: Travis Barker (Blink 182) and AJ Maddah (promoter for Soundwave, which Barker is not playing) really had it out on Twitter. A lot of accusations were thrown around, by both sides, before they finally got on the phone and declared it was a "huge" misunderstanding. The post that started it all was an instagram from Travis to his fans apologizing for missing the Australian tour.

exciting weekend...fight!.

it makes perfect sense that Barker gets some of the proceeds. He lets a drummer take his place and gets 1/3 of the money. Same thing would happen if I had bartending job and let one of my friends take my position. they would pay me a percentage.

The 1.5million to be paid if they use the name Blink is odd. I don't see him saying something like that to Mark Hoppus. They aren't sticklers like...Tom. But alas, business is business. Money comes first. Before Friendship, before Family, before women.

Soooo, did Travis really get a 1/3 of his guarantee plus charge Tom and Mark 1.5 million dollars to play under the name Blink-182 without him? It says everything has been sorted out but doesn't clarify as to whether that was a lie or not.

I love Travis, but getting 1,5 million dollars by not touring and staying at home sounds like a fucking rip-off. I know that Blink-182 is a band and a brand and he is part of what made blink what it is today, but getting 1,5 million fucking dollars for basically not doing anything sounds lame.

Chewing with your mouth open is the worst. It makes me wanna punch people over the age of 5.

Travis, it's acceptable to type accurately. We as fans would be willing to wait an extra 30 seconds for you to proofread your tweets.
