Wow, my prayers go out to his family.  I really hope and pray that he makes it through this alive.  I never listened to Blink 182 but I used to watch his show sometimes.  Plus I loved the remixes that he used to drum over.  I really hope he pulls through.  The pilots and crew died in the crash.  Only Travis and DJ AM survived.  Wow. my prayers and heart go out to them.  I hope they will be ok. Here’s the news release.

 MSNBC reports  former Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, as well as DJ AM, along with crew and two additional passengers were involved in a midnight plane crash Friday, following an earlier performance.

Barker and DJ AM (real name Adam Goldstein) yet cling to life in an Augusta, GA burn unit while two crew members and two passengers tragically lost their lives.
