Blink-182‘s Travis Barker last night (March 21) held a ‘drum-off’ with Animal from The Muppets.
The drum battle took place on US talk show Jimmy Kimmel… Live! and saw the two drummers each showing off their considerable skills in front of the studio audience, reports TMZ. Scroll down to see footage of the incident.
Barker made a guest appearance on the show to perform with Animal’s band, Dr Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. Earlier today (March 22), The Muppets were given a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
The foam and felt creations secured their place in movie history with the 2,466th star on the famous sidewalk, according to the Huffington Post.
Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo The Great and newcomer Walter were all in attendance to accept the honour. Kermit said: “I want to say on behalf of The Muppets that we are just really happy to be here on Hollywood Boulevard joining some of the greatest names in showbiz.”
The Muppets have been successfully revived on the big screen with the latest movie, starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams. The movie won an Oscar for Bret McKenzie’s original song ‘Man Or Muppet,’ and a sequel is now in the works.
