Travis Barker is all rocker as he wears The Cramps t-shirt during coffee run in Calabasas
Travis Barker played the supporting role of his new wife Kourtney Kardashian’s husband as they traveled East for the launch of his Boohoo collection during New York Fashion Week.
Now back in his adopted hometown of Calabasas, Los Angeles, the Blink-182 drummer took a brief break from his work day to stop at Blue Bottle Coffee for a pick-me-up in the form of four cups of Joe.
Distracted by what seemed like a business call, the Southern California native walked straight from his parked vehicle to the store, keeping his phone close to his face as he chatted.

Barker, 46, looked rocker cool in faded black jeans with matching Vans trainers and a red t-shirt with the logo of psychobilly rock band The Cramps on the front.
He accessorized with a thick silver necklace and a black beanie that covered most of the tattoos that cover his head.
But while wearing a short-sleeved tee, her plethora of body ink along her arms, hands, and neck was easily visible to the casual passerby.

After making his purchase, the rocker headed back outside to his vehicle, and again was seen talking on the phone.
While Barker has collaborated with an array of different artists, whether on stage or in the recording studio, which includes production, his main musical activity has been Blink-182.
There’s been a lot of talk surrounding the band over the past few weeks and months, which has some fans hoping they’ll be back on the road soon on tour with original co-vocalist and guitarist Tom DeLonge.
The band have been sidelined since vocalist-bassist Mark Hoppus was diagnosed with stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma in April 2021.

At the time of his grueling chemotherapy treatment, DeLonge, Barker and Hoppus all reunited in the same room, a first in more than five years, and seemingly mended fences.
“It’s actually better than before,” said All The Small Things musician People of their meetings, adding: “There was no agenda. There were no lingering grudges. It came down to what it should be: three friends sitting in a room.”
Following these “brutal” chemo sessions, Hoppus was declared cancer-free last September.
The former trio’s new connection has many fans thinking they’ll get back together, which could mean current co-vocalist and guitarist Matt Skiba will be kicked out of the band.

So far, there has been no official announcement, but there are signs that DeLonge will be joining the group after a seven-year absence.
“I continue to write music and am open to the next phase of Blink,” said Hoppus, 50, when asked about Blink-182’s status. ‘I am hopeful for the future. I’m just damn happy to be here.
As for Skiba, he was asked if he still plays in Blink-182 in an Instagram post, to which he replied, “Your guess is as good as mine.”
Although he admitted his status was uncertain, Skiba added that he was “very proud” and “grateful” for his time with Blink-182.
