  • Blink 182/ Travis Barker

    COLUMBIA, S.C. - A Learjet has crashed while departing from a South Carolina airport, killing four people and critically injuring two others including a former member of rock band Blink 182.

    NBC News reported that Travis Barker, an ex-drummer with the band who also starred in MTV reality show "Meet the Barkers", was among those hurt. He was transported to a burn center in Augusta, Georgia, where he was listed in critical condition on Saturday morning.

    Barker had performed Friday night at an event alongside Perry Farrell, the former Jane's Addiction singer, as well as Gavin DeGraw and DJ AM.

    Hospital officials later confirmed that DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Michael Goldstein, had also been admitted to the burn unit in critical condition.

    It was not clear whether Farrell and DeGraw were also traveling with Barker.

    Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the plane carrying six people was departing shortly before midnight Friday from Columbia when air traffic controllers reporting seeing sparks. She said the plane went off the runway and crashed on a nearby road.

    Bergen said the Lear 60 was headed to Van Nuys, California. She was unable to confirm the names of who was on board.

      From the article I read both were DJ AM and Barker were injected upon impact though both were able to stand and begin walking. During this they were both on fire, trying to pat each other down. Sounds like the biggest concern here will be their burns.

        I'm glad you posted this. I've been searching around trying to find the real story wherever i could. Im a big Blink fan - and an even bigger Boxcar Racer fan... I love Travis, he's awesome. I really want to find out what's true and what's rumor.

          I figured that jelly. I heard first he had died, then that he was burned badly.
          I found this article and thought I might try to help others before the "rumors" got depressing.

          yes they were burned. Burns are very bad injuries.

                          Barker and DJ AM jumped clear of the plane.

                          I heard that from a local rock station

                              Yes, John Bonham was good but this thread is not about comparing drummers. Someone mentioned they were not familiar with who Travis Barker is so someone else responded with a video to help explain. Good job on trying to go off topic though...

                              Here's an even better video to explain/show who Travis Barker and DJ AM are and what they do:

                              (Again, this isn't about what drummer is better.)
