With all the female problems Travis Barker has had in the past few months, it’s good that the famed rock drummer (blink-182, The Transplants, +44) can at least find love from his girls on the side. Gloria, Blondie and Marshmallow may only be pet names of his old-school Cadillacs, but Travis has put enough love into each of their makeovers to warrant a real relationship.
But you don’t need to be told that this man has an obsession with ’Lacs—we’ve told you before (June/July 2005), and it’s written clearly all over him. Now, whenever Travis isn’t playing “garage” with his lovely ladies, he’s busy with his many businesses, which consist of running his clothing line, Famous Stars and Straps; opening a couple of Los Angeles-based boutiques; and producing hip-hop beats for various artists, including his new group, Expensive Taste, with rapper Paul Wall and former Transplants front man Skinhead Rob. Not exactly Miss USA or Ms. Hilton, but it’s a start.
