Blink 182 have pledged to donate $100,000 to the burn centers that treated their drummer, Travis Barker, after he nearly lost his life after a plane crash last year. Read more on this story below.
Travis Barker and the late DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) were the only ones to survive the crash, as the plane they were in failed to clear the runway and burst into flames.
Sadly DJ AM survived the plane crash but died of a drug overdose this past month.
The two pilots and all the other passengers died in the crash, and Goldstein and Barker were left with second and third-degree burns. T
Now Barker is saying a big thanks to all the medical specialists that treated him at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Georgia and the Grossman Burn Center in California by donating the proceeds from Blink-182’s show in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday.
In a statement the band says the donation is “being made in recognition of their tremendous care and aid of Travis Barker through his recovery from the 2008 plane crash”.
