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.
