Travis Barker Wasn't Sure That He Could Still Play
"For a while after my accident, I was just recovering," he said. "No one really thought I would be able to play drums after all the surgeries and everything. That was always on my mind. Once I was in the studio, it was like, 'I can walk now, I can play the drums still. I have to finish [the solo album].'"
Barker's recovery included 16 surgeries and he almost had one of his feet amputated. He also said his left hand was completely numb for a while. "It was sketchy, so I came a long way. And mentally I was a basket case," he said. "It was a big amount of time to get off of 20 medications that they had me on, and then physically getting in shape. It was heavy." more on this story
