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.”
