Travis Barker has opened up in detail about the plane crash that almost took his life, showing the world the gruesome photos of injuries that almost killed him.

Barker's new book, "Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums Drums Drums," contains hard-to-view pics of Travis' legs and back which are completely scorched.  

Travis was on a private jet that was taking off in South Carolina when it crashed just off the runway. Travis says in the book after the crash he jumped out onto the wing, which was filled with fuel. His body was doused with the fuel and then ignited by the surrounding flames.

Travis and DJ AM both survived, although DJ AM got addicted to painkillers after the crash and in 2009 died of an overdose.

Four others died in the crash.
