Travis Barker Back in the Studio

It’s been only a couple of months since Travis Barker survived a plane crash and was seriously burned, but he’s already back in the studio and playing drums. He made the announcement today on MTV’s Total Request Live (which finally and mercifully has gone the way of the dodo). Barker said, “I’m already playing my drums again….It was like riding a bike. It was really exciting to know I still have my chops. It still felt good. I still can make it around the kit. Everything felt right, so I’m thankful to be able to play.”

Shit yeah! Check out the complete interview below.

[Update 2022: the original vid from 2008 on MTV appears to be out of circulation, but we’ve embedded to newer material below where Travis talks about his experience surviving the crash. Harrowing, life-altering stuff.]
