Travis Barker released from hospital after plane crash

Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has been released from a Georgia hospital after suffering severe burns in a fiery plane crash Sept. 20.

Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has been released from a Georgia hospital after suffering severe burns in a fiery plane crash Sept. 20.

He and celebrity disc jockey DJ AM were the only survivors of the crash, which killed four people.

Hospital spokeswoman Beth Frits says Barker was released on Monday morning and will make a full recovery. Barker, drummer with Blink 182 from 1988 to 2005, and Goldstein, perform together as TRVSDJ-AM. They had played at a free outdoor concert on Friday night in Columbia, S.C. before the crash.

DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, was released from the hospital last week.

The Learjet  went off the end of the runway, crashed through a fence and antennas and burst into flames.

Barker and Goldstein escaped the plane on their own. Barker was burned on the torso and Goldstein had burns to his hands.

The pilot, co-pilot and two passengers died.

Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board have said a cockpit voice recorder revealed the crew tried to abort the takeoff after a tire blew.
