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."

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."

"I don't know," replies pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, according to a cockpit recording released Friday of the plane's final moments.

What would Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler be without a little drama?
"We're not together, but we're really good friends," Moakler told PEOPLE about ex-husband Barker while she attended Saturday's White Party, hosted by Diddy and Ashton Kutcher to benefit Malaria No More. "We have a real love for one another, and we always have."
"Travis is leaving for tour, my babies are going with him, so I'm getting all prepared," says Moakler. "We're lucky that Blink  tours are very lavish. We each have our own buses. At the venues, we set up kid rooms so the kids can kind of get out of the buses and start running around. We have a runner to take [them] 'round. They're going to be going to Canada, to see the different parts of the States … so it's pretty exciting."
