Can someone please cut Travis Barker a break??
The poor guy already had to stop touring for a bit due to blood clots in both his arms, and then he got in a car accident with a school bus the other day with his son in the car! GEEZ!
If you think it of on the flip side, however, Travis is lucky to be alive and is in good shape considering the circumstances.
In a new interview with E Travis says he's lucky to be okay. Despite wearing a wrist brace in said interview, he's fine.
“I was in a really bad car accident but I came out unscathed, which is pretty awesome. My car is totaled but I pretty much walked away OK, which is awesome. A school bus ran a red light. It was insane. I have a really big 4×4 G-Wagon and if I wasn’t in that, it might have been different but it held up pretty well.”
He also told Us Weekly “I’m really lucky everyone’s safe. Fortunately, there were no kids on the bus, just the bus driver. And my son and his best friend are all right. It was just more scary than anything.”
Regarding the blood clots he says: “I’m as good as I can be. I’m just following the doctor’s orders. I actually had staph infection and a ton of blood clots, and I’ve just been in a recovery period.” He said he expects to get back to drumming “in the next three weeks,” adding, “They’re doing a lot of things to hyper heal my hand so as soon as that happens, it’s a green light.”
Glad to hear it!
