Travis Barker, DJ AM Released From Hospital

Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker is making his way back to the West Coast this afternoon (September 29), following his release from the Augusta, Georgia burn unit, where he has been receiving care for the last nine days. According to Joseph M. Still Burn Center spokesperson Beth Frits, Barker was released around 10am Monday morning.

He reportedly boarded a California-bound bus with ex-wife Shanna Moakler, who has been by his side for the last week.

Barker’s release comes three days after his friend Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein was released from the same facility and returned home to Los Angeles by plane.

Barker and Goldstein, who were touring and performing as TRVSDJ-AM, were the only two to survive a September 19 plane crash which left four others dead.

Following a free concert in Columbia, SC on that fateful Friday night, Barker and Goldstein boarded a Learjet 60 at Columbia Metropolitan Airport.

The plane crashed on takeoff at approximately 11:53 pm, killing two passengers and pilots Sarah Lemmon, 31, and 52-year-old James Bland.

Among the two passengers killed was Barker’s assistant and close friend 29-year-old Chris Baker.

Both survivors, who suffered second- and third-degree burns, are expected to make a full recovery.

However, doctors estimate that recovery to be lengthy.
