Miguel, Travis Barker and William Franklyn-Miller on the covers of Man About Town's Autumn/Winter 2023 Issue.
“I was doing an interview yesterday and they asked me how it feels to have a celebrity-owned fashion brand... I'm not a celebrity! I’m a drummer, a husband, a father, a creative and a producer, but I don't consider myself a celebrity. I’m unapologetically me. I'm just like anybody else.”
As the premier lineup of blink-182 makes a comeback with a world tour and upcoming album One More Time, Travis Barker covers our Autumn/Winter 2023 issue. Catching up with us ahead of his London gig, he talks new beginnings both for the band and in his personal life, the role tragedy has played in bringing blink-182 back together, his obsessive perfectionism and providing a “home for artists” with his own label, DTA Records.
“This is a beautiful, violent, joyous, album and moment in life and lets audiences in a new way. It's through expressing as truly as we can and as purely as we can that we are of service to our audience and our audience can evolve. My interfacing with all of this is making work that’s true and those that connect with it truly will connect with it. Trusting in that is the most cathartic part of my process now.”
Ahead of the release of his fifth studio record VISCERA, Grammy-award winner Miguel covers our Autumn/Winter 2023 issue. Almost 13 years since his debut album’s release, he talks letting the world in again, collaborating with the likes of Lil Yachty and how experiencing loss drove him to enrich his understanding of himself.
