WATCH: Travis Barker’s Spooky Drumming…Is Scary Good.

Travis Barker of Blink-182 must have really been feeling the Halloween spirit this year.  Check out this collaboration jam video with BYOS:

You most assuredly know one of those percussionists.  But let me introduce you Ralph Nader of BYOS.  His take on drums is definitely worth a moment of your ears.

It is hard to label what they do, but think of it as “drum line/MEETS/cover band/MEETS/street percussion.”

As an example of one of their many YouTube clips, here is BYOS taking on Marian Hill‘s “Down.”

Or this street jam of Steve Aoki‘s “Boneless.”

Since moving to Los Angeles, Nader seems to have connected with Barker.  This Halloween stunt wasn’t the first collaboration between the two.  And after discovering BYOS, I hope it isn’t their last.  — [eric]
