Travis Barker Offered Friends A Million Dollars To End His Life

(Radio.com) Blink-182's Travis Barker admits in a recent interview that following his 2008 plane crash, where he suffered second and third degree burns, he was in so much agony that he offered friends a million dollars to end his life.

The crash happened on a flight from South Carolina to California. Although the 39-year-old was in the hospital for four months and had to endure 27 surgeries, he was one of the lucky ones.

The crash claimed the lives of four passengers, including Barker's assistant Chris Barker, two members of his crew, and a security team member. DJ AM also survived the plane crash, but died in 2010 from an accidental drug overdose.

The Blink-182 drummer tells ABC, "I mean, [medical officials] had to take my phone out of my room because I was making these phone calls. I would call friends of mine and go, 'You know, I'll deposit a million dollars into whoever's bank account. Like, I'm done." Read more here.
