Travis Barker Opens Up About Fatal Plane Crash, Fear of Flying

| Filed under: DJ A.M.Travis Barker

Travis Barker Flying

Travis Barker is terrified to fly!

And can you blame him?

His plane crashed a few years back and killed everyone onboard except for him and DJ A.M.

It's nothing to hang his head over. There are a TON of phobias, and the Blink-182 drummer doesn't suffer from the majority of them.

Aichmophobia, for example, is the fear of needles but Travis is stained with more ink than Gutenberg's printing press!

Still, he wants to conquer his fear because it'll set an example for his kids and even make his impending tour easier.

Travis recently said:

"I'm contemplating getting knocked out and getting on a plane to Australia. I want to overcome that eventually. When I do, I think it's going to be Qantas. They never had a crash, never had a fatality."

Those are drastic measures but we understand the sentiment.

Good luck, sir!

    When he wants attention, he starts yapping about that fucking plane crash. What's wrong, Travis, is your band's shitty album not selling well or something that you need to use this years-old plane crash to generate some interest? Stop milking the fucking crash already, loser.

    Travis who? You talking about the walking skeleton, inked from head-to-toe who married a ho-bag, displayed family dysfunction on TV, got divorced and got some publicity because he survived a plane crash 4 years ago?

    If a plane went down with you in it and you and only 1 other guy survived, you should never get on another plane as long as you live. That is God telling you no more planes. No more planes…………………….no more planes.

    Big props to him for even considering flying again, reading some of these rude comments make me disgusted with the human race. God bless

    Re: TEMPE – DJ AM did die of a drug overdose. Not in the plane crash. Google it.
