13TRVSDJAM Plane Crash Update

As I’m sure most of you have heard by now, a doctor working with Travis Barker and DJ AM says both are expected to make full recoveries. They are being treated at an excellent burn center for second- and third-degree burns. Travis was burned on the torso, while DJ AM suffered burns on his arm and scalp.

Hollywood is now making a mass exodus to Augusta, Georgia to visit their injured pals.

Celebs reportedly traveling to Georgia include Shanna Moakler (Barker’s ex-wife), Nicole Richie (DJ AM’s former fiance), Paris Hilton (who has famously feuded with Moakler) and Mandy Moore (DJ AM’s former girlfriend).

So far, I haven’t come across any paparazzi shots of these people entering or leaving the hospital. I’m not sure what that means, but it’s interesting indeed.

As for the cause of the crash, the NTSB is reporting that the pilots believed a tire blew on the runway.

In a separate press conference on Sunday, National Transportation Safety Board member Debbie Hersman said that the plane’s crew members thought a tire burst as they started down the runway.

Hersman said the plane’s cockpit voice recorder had been recovered from the wreckage. On it, pilots of the Learjet told air traffic controllers they heard a tire burst and were going to abort takeoff.

She added that the cause of the crash is being investigated.

It’s good to hear that Travis and Adam are going to be okay, but I’m sure what they’re going through right now is exceptionally painful, both physically and psychologically. I wish them all the best. They have a whole country sending them positive vibes and, yes, prayers.

    A tip to potential visitors: make sure your visitee has just taken his pain meds. Burns hurt so bad, they are intolerable.

    Sounds like the guys are going to make it, thank God. Reminds me of the little plane that went down outside Clear Lake, Iowa after a gig, killing, among others, Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper.

    Who the hell would want Paris Hilton visiting them in the burn center? To each his own.

    Well Froze, I bet a visit from Paris would take their mind off the pain for a while. Just the misery of being in her company ought to do it.

    I love that you said, “and yes, prayers”…

    Maybe the reason there are no pictures of celebs coming in and out of the hospital is because the paps have decided to behave decently for once.

    Nah.

    for some reason god obviously hates rock musicians; prior to this crash he flamed out several other musicians like, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, Otis Redding, Jim Croce, Rick Nelson and Stevie Ray Vaughn. even though they were all white, if i were lil wayne i’d ride the greyhound for awhile.

  11. Asta says:

    Alliyah wasn’t a rock musician.
