4 killed in SC plane crash; drummer, DJ injured
WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Hours after performing for thousands of South Carolina college students, former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and celebrity DJ AM were critically injured in a fiery Learjet crash that killed four people, authorities said Saturday.
I hope things aren’t as bad as they sound. I dig Blink 182, am OK with +44, and really liked Boxcar Racer. I hope they pull through. I hope my memory of seeing Blink in the Bay Area with Travis spinning upside down in his drum kit isn’t marred by remembering that he died in a plane crash.
I hold my breath but sip air quietly on the sly. Much like when Lady Di was killed, it is strange and coincidental that everyone but the famous people are being reported dead.
