Travis Barker vs. Animal

The Muppetastic DRUM WAR

3/22/2012 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


0_obl3qfir_0_qs1a2bx8
Famed drumming badass Travis Barker faced off last night ... against the ONE drummer on the planet who might give him a run for his money -- Animal from the Muppets -- and the entire battle was caught on tape!

Here's how it happened -- Travis made a guest appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" with Animal's band (Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem) and things got heated between the two drummers ... who then decided to settle the score with an on-air drum off.

It was pretty damn close -- so we gotta ask ...

You ARE being sarcastic when you refer to Travis Barker as a "badass" drummer, aren't you? I mean, he is considered the Paris Hilton/Kim Kardashian of musicians. I loved the YouTube clip in which a 6th grade kid plays Barker's stuff better than Barker does.

That's a close call to make. I'm gonna have to say Animal. Why? You try slipping on a costume and playing like that...


Best drum solo; hands down, Michael Shrieve of Santana at Woodstock.

I started off at 12 playing bass guitar, around 30 I switched to lead guitar for the next 20 years. Then in my 50's i bought a drum set. They were the easiest to learn than anything I ever tried in music.

If you want to be in a band and think guitar, keyboard or horns too much, buy a set of drums.

Barker is the best drummer of our generation or he wouldn't have been picked for this battle.
TMZ fans are definitely not the smartest drummers/musicians
