If he dies, I hope all the people who spread the rumor that he was dead a couple years ago feel like shit.

That's fucked up. I love that guy and I hope he recovers well. It must feel horrible to know that 4 other people died...


nothing can stop that guy.That was one of the first thing that came to me too. Like when we saw him playing using only one arm in Amsterdam with +44.

I know a lot of you weasels were disappointed he didn't died so you could add another person to your "why is everyone dying?" list.

Yes, and one leg when he was with Blink 182. He's a force, and I think he's done more for young drummers than virtually anyone in this generation. My heart goes out to the four who didn't have that last chance of survival that he and DJ AM have.

Update from .org. Lets hope his recovery goes as smoothly and quickly as possible.


Following up on yesterday's story, Billboard has an update on Travis Barker and DJ AM, who were critically injured in a plane crash this past Friday.

The medical director at the Georgia burn hospital where both men are being treated says they are expected to make a full recovery. Dr. Fred Mullins has revealed that the musicians are being treated for second and third degree burns, recovery from which can take as long as a year. Barker was burned on his torso while DJ AM, real name Adam Goldstein, was burned on his hands and part of his head. Both men are in critical but stable condition and have no other injuries from the crash.

Four people were killed on Friday when a Lear 60 on which the two men were passengers failed to take off and crashed in Columbia, South Carolina. You can find the original story here.

I'm really hoping that those two men trying to put each other out were Barker and DJ AM, and not two people who were burned alive.

"[The two (=Barker & DJ AM)] told me that they slid down the wing on the right side of the plane," he said. "They said they were on fire, and that they tackled each other and put each other out.

Wow. Thanks. I didn't know they were actually walking around and such when the police got there. Apparently, critical =/= unconscious.

The video has now been removed. Anyone care to explain what it was of?

It was sort of a news video of the crash site just before the ambulance arrived. You couldn't see much, but you could hear Travis screaming in the background as he was on fire. There people making comments like "He's such a pussy" and the like, and they are all douchebags.

It was the phone call between Travis and the emergency services. he sounded really bad and scared shitless, not that anyone wouldn't be.

Oh, it was a phone call? I couldn't quite get that. It was all really fuzzy. My bad.
