I am pretty sure that this was big news when it did happen, but it happened awhile ago. 2008, Travis Barker, the drummer for Blink 182, was involved in a plane crash. Four of six people in the plane died, only Barker and his friend Adam Goldstein (DJ AM) survived. Barker suffered 3rd degree burns across 65% of his body.
Here's Barker speaking about the crash on Larry King Now. Just like Larry was 5 years late to interview him on the crash, I was one year late in posting this video.
I never had a problem with flying. His story is some scary, fear inducing shit. At least he looks very good for a person who had 3rd degree burns across 65% of his body. You really can't notice.
Just found myself a new hobby though. Watching Larry King talk to people who are 1/4 his age.
How can Larry take any of this seriously. Back in the day, when there was a squable between two composers they just raised the local street gangs and had it out with switchblades on the streets. Larry didn't even see a gun until his 47.
