What was the most unusual drum or piece of percussion that Travis used for the upcoming solo album?
"He really got into the cocktail kit. He uses it in a very different way than you would traditionally use a cocktail kit, so he’s had a lot of fun with that."
Is that something that happened accidentally?
"That’s exactly what happened. He got behind one and was, ‘Hmm, this is a lot of fun,’ and it just went off from that. With the cocktail kit he has a marching snare and with his marching background, it sounds more like a marching band the way he’ll put stuff together.
"You can get drum’n’bass out of it, a lot of interesting ways to play it. It’s designed for a small band playing in a corner somewhere, but Travis gives it a much different vibe."
