Best of luck, I met him last year and he's a great guy.

On a side note, I think it's funny though how this is the third news post about different parts of the very same blog post (The Quilt samples, the mash-up album, now this).

Glad to hear he's cleaning up. And I'm even happier to hear he's not going to join the 27 club.

Props to him. That takes a lot of courage and it's good to know he's getting better. I wish him all the best in his health. I hope this reality check brings him back to Earth a little more seeing as he seemed to be on his way to being another pompous ass celeb (cough cough Pete cough)

Haha, I was just thinking how crazy it looked. It's probably the angle, but it looks way too short for such a tall guy.

i hope travis can recover from that shit...
i've been fighting depression for a long time and i go through spurts of abusing my meds, it sucks to think that one fucking capsule can contain your happiness but on the other hand it can make you dependent on it just to feel alive...soo fucked up
i'm happy there's atleast someone out there going through the same shit i am

A friend of mine finally got sent to a rehab program.
I missed her like crazy but I'm so glad she's off of everything now.
I was always scared she was going to overdose, but thankfully she got the help she needed.

Best wishes, hopes, and prayers to Travis. He'll feel better after he's off of everything.
My friend keeps telling me how happy she is to be off of everything.
