DJ AM and Travis Barker were critically injured in a plane crash Friday night (September 19) in Columbia, South Carolina. They had just performed at a free T-Mobile-sponsored show in the Five Points area, along with Perry Farrell and headliner Gavin DeGraw. Farrell's manager, Peter Katsis, confirmed that Farrell was not on the plane; it was unclear at press time whether DeGraw was onboard.
According to Lynne Douglas, public information officer for the Columbia Metro Airport, the crash took place just before midnight on Friday and involved a private Learjet with six passengers onboard. While taking off, the plane, which never left the ground, began sending up sparks and skidded off the end of the runway through a fence separating the airfield from a nearby roadway. It then crossed the roadway and ended up in an embankment, catching fire on impact. Douglas said two passengers who were later confirmed to be AM and Barker escaped the aircraft while it was on the ground, while the other two passengers and crew members died in the crash.
Beth Frits, a spokesperson for the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia, confirmed that AM (born Adam Goldstein) and Barker were transported to a hospital in Columbia, following the crash. They were transferred AM by helicopter and Barker by ambulance to the Still Center soon after.
Lexington County Deputy Coroner Brian Setree confirmed for MTV News on Saturday morning that three men and a woman were killed in the crash. Just after 10 a.m. Saturday, Setree identified two of the crash victims: the plane's pilot, Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim, California, and her co-pilot, James Bland, who was 52 and lived in Carlsbad, California. The National Transportation Safety Board has scheduled a press conference for 11:30 a.m., and more details are expected to be revealed at that time.
Former Blink-182 drummer Barker, 32, and DJ AM, 35, were the house band for the 2008 VMAs.

When did I say he deserves it? I just simply don't care.

We've lost so many great musicians who Travis doesn't hold a candle to, and he only got injured. Big deal, I think we all know he'll survive. He has the cash to survive. If you wanna hear something actually tragic, go read Chuck Schuldiner's story, he was dying of a brain tumor and his health insurance denied helping him with doctor bills, so he couldn't afford treatment even with bands supporting him, then just died.

Did that make news? No, only people in the metal world knew about that. And now I see Travis' silly plane crash story up on myspace and everywhere else and I bet my life, if he was fat and had a mole on his face, no one would give a shit(or know who he is, for that matter). I don't hold much sympathy towards celebrities who's career is based on about 80% of how "hot" they look.

I am not trying to be an asshole, I am just being brutally honest.
I do wish him and his family well, but its honestly don't see it as tragic as other people are.

all you "smart" people out there people did die in this. the pilot and co pilot died and 2 friends. did they deserve to die? no. stop being a inconsiderit jerk and relize that money cant save some1 who has sever burns all over there body. money has nothing to do with this. travis is not famous just because hes "hott" he is a awsome drummer, producer and owner and founder of famous star and straps a SKATEBOARD company so stop saying hes a ass hole and he dasevers to die when he is in critcal condishon in a hospital. if u were in a plane crash could you get flaming jet fuel all over you and get out and try to save your self? because thats what they did a witness said travis and dj am got out and tryed to get the flameing clothes off of them. i hope you relize that you suck.

An accident involving Travis Barker isn't more important than any plane accident anywhere.

If you read my post I didn't say he deserves to die, you're the one who fails.

And I hope you learn how to spell correctly.

I love Travis. Most of his earlier projects were actually pretty good and I liked them alot. I don't really like any of his newer stuff but he's still really cool. I hope he makes it.

That sucks.
He's a pretty good drummer too, not amazing by any means, but definitely not mediocre.
I hope he's alright, and it sucks for the other people too. Damn shame.
