Travis Barker -- "I Hate Planes"

And who can blame him?

Travis Barker tells Us Weekly he's "grateful to be here at all" after the plane crash that burned him severely –- and killed his assistant and bodyguard. "My biggest fear ever is to be involved in a plane crash, so when that happened," says Trav, "well, I'm just thankful to be alive!"

Barker reveals he's got third-degree burns from his feet to his waist and on one of his hands. He's still in treatment at an L.A. burn center.

Pervy Pete says he hopes he won't be seen as a "scumbag pervert." Wrong on both counts.
