I, for one, was shocked.
But it seems Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker — while a purveyor of audio poop — listens to good music.
For Halloween, he dressed up as former Gorgoroth and current God Seed bassist King Ov Hell.
Either he knows who Gorgoroth are or he just Googled “Black metal makeup” and King Ov Hell’s pics were the most aesthetically-pleasing results.
More than ten years ago, Barker revealed to Sweden’s Close-Up magazine he turned down an opportunity to join Slayer.
“I’ve never revealed this before, but a few months ago, I was offered the position as the replacement for Dave Lombardo in Slayer,” he told the magazine. “It would have been fun — they’re my childhood idols, but I don’t know… I’m happy with what I’ve got going right now.”
He also told MTV News that same year he grew up on Slayer and King Diamond.
He’s also one of the few folks on this planet who knows what it’s like to SURVIVE a plane crash.
