Travis Barker Talks About His Recovery

Posted by: Joe DeAndrea (10/08/08)
Travis Barker talks about his recovery in a new MTV article.
From the Article"I hate planes," he said. "My biggest fear ever is to be involved in a plane crash, so when that happened ... well, I'm just thankful to be alive! I'm just grateful to be here at all." Barker then choked up a bit, the mag said.

"Eating Meat Helped Travis Barker Recover" - I bet someone will spin it this way, eventually.

Glad he's doing better.

Reading that made me happy that he's doing better but some parts are still so heartbreaking.

I'm glad he's positive and doing well.

I wonder if he'll continue to be a vegetarian after he recovers.

Travis always seemed like a stand-up guy to me. So glad he made it out of that alive.

It's so rare for anyone to walk away from a plane crash, and for him to be able to is pretty out of this world.

i have so much respect for Travis. when i met Plus 44 last year, he was the nicest one.

this is crazy to me: "They took pieces from my back and pieces of skin from my thighs and they grafted them onto my feet, my heels and my right forearm and it actually stuck!"

and i don't mean for this to sound insensitive or anything, but i'm just curious about his tattoos. is he going to have pieces of different tattoos all over, or will they be melted? i don't really know how that works i guess. and i wonder, if they are messed up, will he be able to re-do them and touch them up, or will that mess with the skin they had to put on surgically? i'm just curious i guess.

but i can't wait to see Travis back on the drums, doing what he loves, and being with who he loves.
