Travis Barker is no stranger to the music world, having made his mark as a drummer, formerly for Blink-182 and currently in +44. It was only natural that when he married his now ex-wife Shanna Moakler back in 2004, that the couple would hope their love for good old rock-n-roll would be passed on to their children, Atiana Cecilia 9 ½ (Shanna’s daughter with Oscar de la Hoya), Landon Asher, 5 next month, and Alabama Luella, 2 ½. Sharing his family Guitar Hero playlist with Entertainment Weekly, Travis, 32, reveals that their kids have indeed inherited the music bug from their parents!

  • "Sabotage" by Beastie Boys: "Sabotage is super cool. My ex-wife Shanna and I play it together. It’s fun because it’s a song we both know so well."
  • "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath: "My oldest daughter Atiana plays it with my ex-wife and loves it. My 9-year-old daughter knows Black Sabbath now!"
  • "Raining Blood" by Slayer: "My daughter is scared of it, but I love playing ‘Raining Blood.’ It’s really hard, and I’m not good or anything. I play at the beginner level."
  • "School’s Out" by Alice Cooper: "Not surprisingly, this is a favorite amongst the kids."
  • "Talk Dirty To Me" by Poison: "Unfortunately, this is also one of my kids’ favorites. It’s easy on guitar, that’s why they play it, but it’s a little too much information for their age."

I have so much respect for the fact that he considers Atiana his own daughter, and his estrangement from Shanna seemingly hasn’t changed that. He seems like a really awesome father.

My son loves Mahna Mahna by Cake, Ocean Man by Ween and for some reason the Quincy Jones’ song from the Oceans 11 soundtrack, which is really jazzy.

I THINK TRAVIS BARKER IS F*** HOT !!!! ALSO HE IS THE BEST FATHER AND HAS A VERY BIG HEART FOR TOOK ATIANA AS HIS OWN DAUGHTER THAT IS A BLESSING .

Travis is amazing, watch this youtube video how he takes Atiana out into the ocean…he says he lost his own mother at 16 and had a rough childhood and that he’s obsessed with his children and the reason he and Shanna broke up was because they disagree on how to raise the children. But he did say that he and Shanna absolutely love each other.

Tragic news today though about Travis being burned in a plane crash, he’s alive but he’s at a burn center. Praying for his recovery..
