Travis Barker Talks About Plane Crash
And how he has begun eating meat again to aid the healing process
Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker has spoken out about his miracle escape from a recent plane crash.
I hate planes, he says. My biggest fear ever is to be involved in a plane crash, so when that happened... well, I'm just thankful to be alive.
Along with disc jockey DJ Adam Goldstein (DJ AM) they were the only survivors in the crash on September 19th which killed four other people.
Although they escaped with their lives, they sustained severe burns - Travis explains: I have third degree burns basically from my feet up to my waist and both hands. One of my hands was second degree burns and one was third degree burns. I'm trying to have a quick recovery and play the drums again and be able to hold my kids again.
In a bid to make the healing process faster, vegetarian barker talks about how he has had to change his diet: I need protein from food rather than just protein supplements. He says. I changed my diet. I would do anything I possibly could if they said like Theres a possibility you might heal faster if you do eat meat or just change your eating habits. So I did. I dont regret it at all.
Doctors expect them both to recover fully.
