Travis Barker drums so hard he’s killing his hands. Look.

If you know anything about playing the drums, you’ll know that the constant pounding can cause havoc with your wrists, forearms, shoulders, neck, and back. Blink-182’s Travis Barker knows this all too well. In fact, he’s been documenting his various injuries over the years.

In his latest posts, he shows some of the terrible blisters and finger injuries that he’s sustained on the current tour. The man literally bleeds all over himself each night. I don’t know how the guy continues to play night after night.
