Having shared the harrowing experience of narrowly escaping death together last September – when the Learjet carrying them crashed while taking off
from Columbia, South Carolina, killing the four others on board – Blink-182's Travis Barker is now sharing his sentiments about the loss
of his friend Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein.
"Rest In Peace my brother, this really f---s me up," Barker, 33, Tweets
. "I'll never forget everything we've been thru and every time i play the drums i'll think of you."
The pop punk drummer also says: "U were an amazing friend/DJ/human being … Don't know how i am gonna play 2night but i am for AM. My brother is gone.i love u and miss u, i'll never forget all the good times we had."
