Blink-182's Travis Barker Has Online Fight With Promoter (A Top Story)


.
On Monday Blink-182's Travis Barker Has Online Fight With Promoter was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) The promoter behind the Australian Soundwave touring festival blasted Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker at the weekend for taking a third of the band's appearance fee despite not taking part in the series of shows. But after Barker shouted him down on Twitter, he was forced to accept he'd got his facts wrong.

AJ Maddah was responding to a fan query on whether refunds would be available for fans who didn't want to see Blink playing with stand-in sticksman Brooks Wackerman, who was hired after Barker admitted he couldn't overcome his fear of flying in order to make the shows Down Under this week.

Mstarz reports that the promoter said: "I'm told we can't refund and there will be no discount on the $5m fee because Travis Barker insisted on being paid in full. What he has done is extortion he thinks he's a f**king gangster."

The drummer, who has not boarded a plane since narrowly surviving a fatal crash in 2008, replied: "Where you getting your information from, man? None of this is true. This is all bullsh*t!" - That was just the beginning.
