Travis Barker Still Struggles with Fear of Flying after Fatal Crash

Originally posted 07/14/2012 10:15AM

Nearly four years after a plane crash critically injured Travis Barker and friend Adam Goldstein and killed four others, the Blink-182 drummer has yet to shake his fear of flying.

"It's something I want to overcome," Barker, 36, tells Red Bulletin. "And my kids are scared to death to fly. I want them to witness me overcome it."

Barker even knows what airline he's going to take for his first flight.

"I'm contemplating getting knocked out and getting on a plane to Australia," says Barker. "When I do, I think it's going to be Qantas. They never had a crash, never had a fatality – knock on wood."

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.

Drummer Travis Barker has been giving Rihanna private music lessons – and she's a great student, he says.

"Teaching Rihanna some things on drums," the blink-182 drummer tweeted on Tuesday, along with a photo of the pair at a rehearsal space in L.A. "She JAMS!!!!! Watch out for her!!"

While Rihanna can be seen behind a drum kit in the video for her latest single "Rude Boy," a source says she really wanted a pro like Barker to teach her how to play so she can perform live on her upcoming European and U.K. tour.

No word yet on whether Rihanna will show off her new skills when she takes the stage at the 2010 Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday.

How Travis Barker Is Surviving Year of Tragedy

Originally posted 09/24/2009 04:00PM

Despite all he's been through in the last year, Travis Barker is coping as best he can since the tragic plane crash and recent death of friend DJ AM, pal and pro skateboarder Rob Dyrdek tells PEOPLE.

He is doing "better than I would probably think anyone would really expect," Dyrdek says. "I think he's smart enough to know everything happens for a reason and he's just dealing with it."

What he's dealing with is the harrowing experience of narrowly escaping death with Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein" last September when the Learjet carrying them crashed while taking off from Columbia, S.C., killing four people on board. The Blink 182 drummer was devastated when just last month, Goldstein was found dead in his New York City apartment.

"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."
