Uber Drummer Travis Barker and Turntable Wizard DJ AM aka Adam Goldstein were critically injured when their lear jet careened off the runway after air traffic control reported sparks coming from the jet. The crash happened in Columbia S.C. friday night after Barker and Goldstein performed a free show in the five points area of Columbia. Also performing at the T-Mobile sponsored event were Perry Farrell and headliner Gavin Degraw. There was speculation that Farrell and Degraw was on the plane, but has since been confirmed that they were not. Unfortunately four others were killed in the tragedy. The two celebrities were taken to an Augusta Georgia burn center where they are in critical but stable condition. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the deceased,and also to Barker and AM on a speedy recovery.
