Travis always stay away from plans and he had a misconception that he will die during a plane crash. When Blink-182 offered a plane to every member he replied that “Please don’t give me the plane—I have a really fucked-up fear of flying.”

And this thought comes true when he was going with DJ AM to California. It happened while the plane was landing. It’s one tire sparking and the plane crashed into an embankment. “When everything stopped, I tried to get everyone I could,” Barker remembered. After this incident, DJ AM died a year later.  “There were times when they were talking about amputating my foot because I didn’t have enough skin on my body for my grafts,” he said. 

Travis said in an interview with MTV, “I’m already playing my drums again, and I’m already back in the studio”. And “was like riding a bike. It was really exciting to know I still have my chops. It still felt good… I still can make it around the kit. Everything felt right, so I’m thankful to be able to play.”

Solo Performance

It was always, ‘We’re going to record an album,’ then ‘Tom refuses to get into the studio without a record deal.’ So everyone does hella amounts of work to get a record deal and now Tom isn’t part of Blink-182. It’s hard to cover for someone who’s disrespectful and ungrateful… Everyone should know what the story is with him and it’s been years with it.”
