Three years after a horrific plane crash landed him in the hospital, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker says his life has changed in some surprising ways.
For starters, the rocker immediately adjusted his diet.
Saying he eats "fake meat," Barker explains, "I've been vegan since I got out of the hospital … It's another eye opener. It changed my life in a number of ways," he tells Rolling Stone.
He makes exercise more of a priority than ever, and also managed to wean himself off of prescription medication.

Travis Barker needs more time to grieve.
"After much thought and consideration, Blink-182 has rescheduled their next two shows in order for Travis Barker to mourn the loss of his dear friend Adam Goldstein," the band says in a statement.
Blink-182, which pulled out of Monday's show in Saratoga, N.Y., will now play St. Louis on Sept. 29 and Cleveland on Sept. 30. To accommodate the change, shows in Charlotte, N.C., and Atlanta have also moved to Oct. 6 and Oct. 7 respectively.

After struggling through a weekend show, Travis Barker's band Blink 182 pulled out of a Saratoga, N.Y., concert Monday, citing the "circumstances surrounding the unfortunate and untimely passing of our dear friend Adam 'DJ AM' Goldstein."
Performances by Weezer, Taking Back Sunday and Chester French were set to continue as planned along with "some special surprises," Blink 182 said in a statement. "We thank all of our fans for their support in this tough time."
Barker, who had been a fellow survivor with Goldstein of a plane crash last year, made it through a difficult performance on Saturday in Hartford, Conn., with a moment of silence dedicated to the celebrity DJ.

Having expressed his sadness earlier in the day via Twitter about the loss of his friend DJ AM, Travis Barker had to face the music – and the crowd – at a Blink-182 concert Saturday night in Hartford, Conn.
"This night is really hard for us on stage," bassist Mark Hoppus said from the stage. "We lost a dear friend yesterday. His name was Adam Goldstein. You probably know him as DJ AM. He was an innovator and a genius and he loved music more than anything else. Above all he was a dear friend."

They got engaged last year in Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, so it made perfect sense that Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and former Miss USA Shanna Moakler would marry in high gothic style on Halloween Eve, PEOPLE reports.
