A doctor has announced that Travis Barker and DJ AM are expected to have a full recovery after yesterday's horrific plane crash.

Barker and Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein were severely burned yesterday when their Learjet crashed before takeoff from a Columbia, South Carolina airport. The crash killed four people, including Barker's assistant Chris Baker.

Dr. Fred Mullins, medical director of the Joseph M. Still Burn Center, said both Travis and Adam suffered second and third-degree burns. Mullins said Barker's torso and Adam's arm and part of his head were burned.

A full recovery ??? They will live, but in pain for the rest of their lives, scars and skin grafts and infection threats beyond imagination. It's a terrible accident, nothing good came from it, no one was lucky ... burn the tip of your finger, now imagine that pain intensified by a hundred or more times, all over a large portion of your body. Luck, no, just not their time to leave.

#1 c'mon James, so what are you say'n, God doesn't care about the 4 who died? NOTHING bad comes from God. We don't know yet but, it was most likely human error. Not tryin to fight with you just making a point. Peace..

justice is served    

I know someone who suffered 3rd degree burns on his legs, hands, and torso. It took a while with the grafts, but he has gone on to lead the life he was living by the grace of God. Good luck to these two men; God was looking over then and they will be fine.

Too bad people don't act this way about the troops that get burned and mutilated everyday in Iraq. I'm not saying anything bad about theses two, but soldiers are real heroes...not drummers.
