On Monday Travis Barker May Fly Again was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker may rethink plans to sideline himself for his band's upcoming tour of Australia due to his fear of flying.
He narrowly escaped with his life in 2008 when a private jet he'd hired with collaborator DJ:AM crashed on takeoff, killing four of the six people on board. It was later revealed Barker's injuries nearly killed him too. DJ:AM later died as a result of becoming addicted to the medications prescribed for him after the accident.
Barker, 36, recently said his reluctance to board a plane meant a stand-in would have to be hired when the three-piece played down under. But after fans pleaded with him to change his mind, he says he's considering flying after all – although he'll do it under sedation. The drummer says: "I'm contemplating getting knocked out and getting on a plane to Australia. I want to overcome that eventually for me – and my kids are scared to death to fly. I want them to witness me overcome it." - more on this story
