Travis Barker released from hospital

September 29th, 2008 // 40 Comments

Plane-crash survivor Travis Barker was discharged from the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Georgia today well ahead of the two-week mark given by Jermaine Dupri on Friday. DJ AM, who also escaped the crash with Travis, was released Friday. People reports:

“Travis is in good condition and was discharged this morning,” Burn Center spokesperson Beth Frits told PEOPLE Monday. “He has left Augusta.”

Travis was last seen paddling down Interstate 95 in a canoe. Have you ever seen one of those burst into flames? I rest my case.

    In related news, this weekend I got an emergency phone call and left a sausage on the grill until it got completely charred. Nobody wanted to eat it. Welcome to your new life, Travis.

    #1, unfortunately, you will be forever stuck in your life.

  4. Ted from LA

    oh man…he made it :(

    That sucks for the history of music. Everything he touches sucks.

  5. Vince Lombardi

    On the upside, we will be spared the view of him drumming shirtless from here on out.

  6. Cindy

    #1 – you’re wrong. Just check out #3, trying to earn his turn sucking the Barker charrocock. As I’m sure he’s heard many times already, “girls, this is how you do it.”

    travis be nimble!
    travis be quick!
    oh shit, travis fell on the candle stick!

  8. Good for him, I’m glad he’s doing better. :)

    If he’s going to use a canoe from now on, however, he should know that there’s a risk of drowning. But if he’s going to insist upon paddling it around busy interstates, he should know that there’s a risk of being…you know…smashed into with a car.

  9. Where is the celebration BBQ being held?

  10. Sam

    He announced he’s starting a new band with Charo as the lead singer.

  11. Awkward Well Wisher

    “Don’t worry, Travis, in a few months you’ll be back burning up the skins again!!! … Oh, hey, sorry man. My bad.”

  12. Medications

    #5, he was burned from the waist-down only, so I doubt it. If anything he’ll drum shirtless even more to show off his good half

  13. Erica

    I like my steaks rawwww…I use charrrrcoal….I hold and BBQ and realllyyy roast ‘em up goooodddd. Would you like to come Travis?

    Also, when did I become dead inside?

  14. Erik

    While in the hospital he shitted 5 bags of charcoal briquettes so they’re hooked up for BBQs for quite a while.

  15. Reporter

    Like most of his fans, and fans of Blink-182, Travis spent a portion of his life as an total flamer.

    When did you become dead inside? – Not sure

    When did you become not funny? – about a quarter past two today.

  17. jesus

    i get the impression he isn’t very popular

  18. FRIST!!!

    Wow, none of you are funny today. I can’t even stand this douche, or the other one for that matter, but that shit’s just wrong. I hope you all get drunk at a kegger and fall into the bonfire, and then you will know what it’s like to be a woman and get nothing but spam emails telling me I have erectile dysfunction and my penis is too small.
    I’m telling you…IT’S HUGE!!

  19. Sandy

    Their next album will be covers of Smokey Robinson songs.

  20. Jim

    No, I think they’re doing a combo album with the Black Eyed Penis.

  21. James

    Nice, make fun of a guy that almost died, witnessed 4 of his friends die and is now scarred both physically and emotionally for the rest of his life. And wait love him or hate him, he’s accomplished more then any of you will in your entire lives. Grow up you hacks.

  22. @16 come to my BBQ! You and Travis can bond over some Black Eyed Penis songs. The charrrr-coal is really lighting up good.

  23. Richard McBeef

    @22 – let me clarify for you.

    sick twisted humor – good
    bad humor – bad

    Black eyed penis? For fuck’s sake. L A M E

  24. Erica

    @23 awww now you’re making fun of #20 too! It was his joke first and everyone thought he was hilarious. Just cuz it’s mine you don’t like it? What’s you’re vendetta, lol. Is your penis burned? lol.

  25. havoc

    I don’t give a shit one way or the other. But I don’t wish on any man for his dick to turn into a pork rind….



  26. Beer Baron

    Didn’t you hear? 3rd degree skin burns are the new tattoos. Everyone will be clamoring to get one!

  27. Beer Baron

    Didn’t you hear? 3rd degree skin burns are the Fall Season’s hottest accessory! Everyone will be clamoring to get one! He’s already ahead of the hip curve.

  28. Beer Baron

    I just love almost repeating myself on a joke that wasn’t as funny written as it was out loud….I wish I was a burn victim…

  29. douche

    He let his friends burn alive. What a charred douche.

  30. Shit For Brains

    Using a lear jet for only 5 people is a massive waste of gas. Next time fly commercial plz.

  31. tool

    what a shitty drummer. glad he’s ok so he can continue to make awful music.

  32. Erica

    @28 if the jokes not funny, don’t tell it. And you don’t want to be like Travis. Nowadays he has to open up for Charo.

  33. swhing

    I hope he gets into a car crash and the car blows up.

  34. lidsay

    I’m so happy for him. Young people don’t deserve to die, no matter if they’re talented or not. They’ve got their life ahead of them. Anyways, all the hot cougars on === === are crazy about him!!! the place where hot cougars and sexy young men;and handsome old folks with sensual chicks meet and mingle! You may wanna check it out!LOL

  35. So this wasn’t SERIOUS, folks.

  36. Grunion

    Right now God is going “Just got out of the hospital? Fuck me. I knew I should have handled that one myself”

  37. The Beer Baron

    @32-You misheard, he’s not opening up for Charo, he’s now a full scale Churro.

  38. haters. im glad he is home. speedy recovery dude. keep your skills tight..

    this man can rock some serious rudiments.

  39. I_call_bullshit

    Wow, going from “third degree burns” in a “doctor induced coma” to out in less than two weeks……I smell someone’s publicist working overtime. Working in an acute care hospital, most burn victims in “doctor induced comas” do not leave the hospitals for months on end, they usually end up with infections like pneumonia and sepsis, and anyone with a skin graft will not be leaving “in less than two weeks”. Godspeed to Travis and DJ AM, but what disgust for true burn victims and their families.

  40. JrsyGrl

    I’m with #39. I mean, I feel for both him and DJ AM for getting hurt, but I find it hard to believe that they both had 3rd degree burns and DJ AM was released within a few days and Barker was released in less than 2 weeks.
