Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker says he offered friends $1 million to kill him after a plane crash in 2008 burned 65% of his body. Four of the six people onboard died in the crash. Barker and his friend, Adam Goldstein (also known as ‘DJ AM’) survived, but just a little under a year later, Goldstein died of a drug overdose—a combination of cocaine and prescription drugs.
Barker spent four months in the hospital undergoing a total of 27 surgeries. In his new book, Can I Say, Barker reveals harrowing details of the crash and how he recovered. He spoke to Nightline on Fusion about his tragic, but inspiring, experiences.
