Blink 182's Travis Barker - Dead


Dead at the age of 32



Don't know if ya'all know of Blink 182, a poplular rock band during it's heyday in the late 90s and early millenium....

Popular for "All the Small Things", "The Rock Show", "First Date",
"What's my age again?", and "Adam's song".

Well, Travis Barker was the drummer,
and was a rad dude.

Had alot of input in their albums,
and was one of their more popular members.

Also had a brief reality TV show on MTV called,
"Meet the Barkers".


Quote:
In what should have been a happy time in Travis Barker's assisant's life, turned out to be a devastating tragedy. Chris Baker was about to become a father once again and wanted to rush home to witness his baby's birth, but sadly, he will never meet his new child, nor will his child meet him. Chris was one of the four people killed in the plane crash late Friday night, that also saw rocker Travis Barker and DJ AM severly burned. Baker told everyone that his pregnant wife was going into labor, and he wanted to be by her side. Travis, who apparently doesn't normally fly on private jets, decided to make an exception, so his assistant could make it in time to witness his child's birth. And the fastest way to do that, was that ill-fated Learjet. That just pulls at the heartstrings! Chris Baker's wife must be beyond devastated. In what should be one ofthe happiest moments in her life, will now be marred by one of the saddest.

Feel sorry for the dude's family.
Was gonna be a father....

Rockn.

I thought he just had some burns on his torso and lower body and was going to fully recover. I didn't realize he died.

Hmm.
I didn't know he died either.
I just thought he had burns, and survived the crash.

Did he have internal injuries or something?

HE'S NOT DEAD!!!!!!!

Quote:
Travis Barker and DJ AM were among six people aboard a Learjet that crashed upon takeoff from a Columbia, South Carolina, airport after midnight Friday. The four others onboard were killed.

Barker, an ex-drummer for the rock band Blink 182 and the star of the MTV reality show Meet the Barkers, had performed at a free Friday-night college event with former Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell, Gavin DeGraw and DJ AM.

Barker, 32, was taken to a burn center in Augusta, Georgia, about 75 miles southwest of Columbia, and was listed in critical condition Saturday morning as was DJ AM (real name: Adam Michael Goldstein), 35, say officials at the facility.

"Both Travis Barker and Adam Goldstein are in critical but stable condition," Beth Frits, spokesperson for the Joseph M. Still Burn Center, tells PEOPLE. "Goldstein was airlifted here and Barker was brought by ground transportation. So they arrived separately."


The Four Who Died

According to South Carolina's Lexington County coroner, Harry Harman, and deputy coroner, Brian Setree, the four others on the plane were killed. They are: pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim Hills, Calif.; co-pilot James Bland, 52, of Carlsbad, Calif.; security guard Charles Still, 25, of Los Angeles; and Barker's assistant Chris Baker, 29, also of Los Angeles.

"We are doing our own investigation as well as waiting to hear what the National Transportation Safety Board has to say," Setree tells PEOPLE.

Lynne Douglas, spokesperson for the Columbia Metropolitan Airport, tells PEOPLE the weather was beautiful when the Leerjet left the runway after midnight Friday.

"The plane crashed on takeoff and went through a fence near Highway 302, then crossed the road and went up an embankment before being filled with flames," she tells PEOPLE. "There was debris all over the runway. We are closed now and hope to reopen later today."

I heard on sirus(channel 9) that the guy in the band survived, but other people on the plane didn't.
