Travis Barker Drums Up Cash for Injured BMX Stars

12/2/2010 4:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Travis Barker will give you his drums ... Rob Dyrdek will let you into his Fantasy Factory ... and a Phillies star will teach you how to hit -- all to help 2 badly injured BMX stars pay for their medical bills.

Travis Barker

UFC Prez Dana White is hosting a benefit at Vanity Nightclub in Vegas this Friday to raise money for TJ Lavin and Ty Pinney -- who each wound up in a coma in separate accidents last month.

Barker, Dyrdek and Shane Victorino are just some of the stars helping out -- we're told a bunch of celebs are also pitching in.

As for the BMXers -- Lavin is recovering slowly at home. Pinney is currently at a rehab therapy center in Vegas.

Nice post ashley that made complete since. NOT. Let me remind you miss ignorant, they're not ASKING for their bills to be paid, people are reaching out and helping them. Just because you're selfish doesn't mean everyone else is too. Yeah and they're serving.. serving what? a bunch of bull**** in other countries fighting for nothing? Nice comparison you douche

Yea Ty has a regular job and was never a BMX pro. He's not a millionaire, never was. He's just a great human being. Do your research before you run your mouths. Thank you UFC, Hard Rock Hotel, Travis Barker, Rob Dyrdek, Ty and TJ's family and friends, and everyone else who is supporting these guys. Thank you TMZ for covering the event.

Karma. It's a mother.

Brittany Spaulding, sport of entertainment? Yeah people watch to see can those ****s pull off a trick out their ass or get killed, so they can talk about it. It's now a real sport, matter of fact it's for little kids and "stupid" grown ups. What kind of moron would break their ****ing neck for a pay check? I think Bmx should be banned and put to rest.

R.J you're in the wrong thread why don't you go to a thread about rainbows and people ****ting out cupcakes because you obviously just hate everything in life. BMX is a sport and being and ******* like you isn't one. Sorry bud. They don't go out there and purposely break their necks to get a check. I mean I know thats how you see it with your tiny little brain working so hard to think of a good come back to bash on this sport. It's an art, just like soccer jiu jitsu racket ball even ****ing bowling, I know this blows your mind but it is and they happen to get hurt. So instead of hating the fact sooo much that they need money to help them recover go build yourself a bridge and get the **** over it.

Really? How old are we? If it is truly so bothersome to you *******s then dont pay attention to it! Ty Pinney is by no means what so ever a millionaire! He bikes because he loves it! Since when is that such a crime? Would you honestly suggest that he shouldnt do what he loves because he could get hurt? Well i shouldnt drive a car because i have the same amount of risk of being hurt. Unless you are supporting the cause and Ty and his family, **** off and get over yourselves.

i wanna talk **** to almost everyone of you. you guys are ****ing nerds on a computer all day/ tyler which is his real name does need help. he wasnt a pro. and lavin is G on a bike. you guys are ****ing stupid. go to a different site and write your bulll**** on something else. you didnt know these guys, i have for a long time. ty is still in a coma and for you people to talk **** is heartless. so go to a different blog or facebook and listen to your emo gay ****. and "try" to talk crap about people that actually make moves. its called a sport for a reason. so if you dont like what these people are doing for them why even come on here. (cause your a computer nerd) with nothin else to do cept be on the comp. you prolly cant even ride a bike cause you people talkin crap are rediculous. k im done. you get the point. **** talkers go somewhere else. ty ty love you bro. get better, you will come through. you always been a strong mofo. see you soon hopefully

BMX riders are by no means millionaires, they do the sport they love. Is there risk involved, yes. But I'm sure most of you are lower middle class that can barely afford internet. But if your kid crashed at a local skate park you'd be asking for money to help your child. Everyone needs help from time to time, why should these guys lose their earnings for a single injury. Wouldn't you appreciate people to help you out?
