Travis Barker & His Punkish Posse

Blink 182 musician Travis Barker was snapped walking with his two children Alabama, 6, and Landon, 8, after shopping at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Wednesday (September 5).

In September’s issue of Rhythm magazine, Travis opened up about his recent health scare.

“I went to the doctor and found that I had eight ulcers in my stomach and then I found that I had a condition from it, from excessive smoking and possibly eating acidic food, but I don’t really eat acidic food, so it was probably just from smoking,” the drummer reveals. “I had pre-cancerous cells in my throat, right there that was a game changer. I quit everything immediately.”

“It’s made a difference. I feel 100% where as before I’d think, ‘I feel good but last night I went hard.’ It’s a lot more consistent like this, you don’t really have good and bad days, you don’t wake up blaming something on a hangover or you did this too much or that too much,” he adds.

“Some people don’t get that wake-up call, they just go straight to the bad news, so it’s a second chance.”

I thought his wake up call would have been the plane crash….


WOW exactly! But maybe theres more to this interview, he cant be that naive about life. He is REALLY lucky to be alive after that plane crash..


I think that crash was unbelievably difficult for him to deal with – his close friend died in the crash, and the only other survivor (DJ AM) died a year later. Just giving up habits when you’re in bereavement was hardly going to be easy.


Oh yea the kids are cute, they look like little vampires tho LOL


Is that 6 year-old wearing eyeliner?


I can’t believe someone would say that about a six year old?!! how rude and inappropriate
