    DJ AM and Travis Barker were critically injured in a plane crash Friday night (September 19) in Columbia, South Carolina. They had just performed at a free T-Mobile-sponsored show in the Five Points area, along with Perry Farrell and headliner Gavin DeGraw. Farrell's manager, Peter Katsis, confirmed that Farrell was not on the plane.
    this shit sounds like "la bamba".

    saw a rumor that his assistant/friend was on the plane with him, the guy who was always right next to him whenever you saw him on tv or in pictures, sounds like he didn't make it, sucks.

    4 killed in SC plane crash; drummer, DJ injured

    By PAGE IVEY – 51 minutes ago

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and a popular disc jockey were critically injured in a Learjet crash in South Carolina that killed four people, authorities said Saturday.

    Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the plane carrying six people was departing shortly before midnight Friday when air traffic controllers reporting seeing sparks. The plane went off a runway and crashed on a nearby road, she said.

    Hospital spokeswoman Beth Frits said Barker and DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, were in critical condition at a burn center in Augusta, Ga., about 75 miles southwest of Columbia.

    Two other passengers and two crew members died, said the National Transportation Safety Board. Their identities were not immediately available.

    Barker and Goldstein, who perform together under the name TRVSDJ-AM, played a free concert in Columbia's college neighborhood Friday night.

    "It's absolutely terrible and tragic," Columbia Mayor Bob Coble said.

    A representative for Barker and DJ AM said she had no information the crash.

    After Blink 182, Barker went on to form the rock band (+44) — pronounced "plus forty-four." He starred in the MTV reality series "Meet the Barkers" with former Miss USA Shanna Moakler, to whom he was married at the time. The show documented the former couple's lavish wedding and life.

    Goldstein at one time was engaged to celebrity Nicole Richie.

    DJ AM And Travis Barker Critically Injured In Private Plane Crash In South Carolina
    DJ and drummer had just performed in free show in Five Points.

    By Gil Kaufman

    DJ AM and Travis Barker were critically injured in a plane crash Friday night (September 19) in Columbia, South Carolina. They had just performed at a free T-Mobile-sponsored show in the Five Points area, along with Perry Farrell and headliner Gavin DeGraw. Farrell's manager, Peter Katsis, confirmed that Farrell was not on the plane; it was unclear at press time whether DeGraw was onboard.

    According to Lynne Douglas, public information officer for the Columbia Metro Airport, the crash took place just before midnight on Friday and involved a private Learjet with six passengers onboard. While taking off, the plane, which never left the ground, began sending up sparks and skidded off the end of the runway through a fence separating the airfield from a nearby roadway. It then crossed the roadway and ended up in an embankment, catching fire on impact. Douglas said two passengers — who were later confirmed to be AM and Barker — escaped the aircraft while it was on the ground, while the other two passengers and crew members died in the crash.

    Beth Frits, a spokesperson for the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia, confirmed that AM (born Adam Goldstein) and Barker were transported to a hospital in Columbia, following the crash. They were transferred — AM by helicopter and Barker by ambulance — to the Still Center soon after.

    Lexington County Deputy Coroner Brian Setree confirmed for MTV News on Saturday morning that three men and a woman were killed in the crash. Just after 10 a.m. Saturday, Setree identified two of the crash victims: the plane's pilot, Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim, California, and her co-pilot, James Bland, who was 52 and lived in Carlsbad, California. At 10:40, Setree confirmed that Barker's assistant, Chris "Little Chris" Baker, also died in the crash. He was 29, and lived in Studio City, California.

    The National Transportation Safety Board has scheduled a press conference for 11:30 a.m., and it is expected more details about the accident will be revealed at that time.

    Former Blink-182 drummer Barker, 32, and DJ AM, 35, were the house band for the 2008 VMAs.

    wow terrible.you just never know in this world...Hopefully they both pull through. I wonder who else was on the plane


    it's also not looking good for Nate Dogg, who suffered another stroke




    Nate Dogg's cousin Donald Smith has told E! News that the superstar's condition is worse then people think.

    According to Smith, the 39-year-old rapper/producer, real name Nathaniel Dawayne Hale was on a life support machine in a Los Angeles-area hospital with a feeding tube in his mouth.

    Nate's situation has since improved and he has been taken off life support but still requires a feeding tube, according to Smith.

    "He has suffered another stroke from his bad eating habits and unhealthy lifestyle," He continued "All we can do now is pray for him."

    Our thoughts are with Nate Dogg & his family.

    he;s not really involved, except for making a trifecta of critically injuried musicians.

    Nate Dogg, is one of rap music's greatest hook man, all over Dr. Dre's, Snoop's, Warren G's albums, just to name a few

    reports said the plane went through a fence and then slammed into an embankment. guessing anyone closer to the front was worse off. saw one eyewitness report that said they saw 2 men escape the plane and they were trying to put the flames out on each other.

    "They overran the end of runway 11. They impacted the antenna array and a number of lights at the end of the runway. They went through the perimeter fence and across the roadway here," said NTSB spokeswoman Debbie Hersman, briefing reporters on Saturday. "There was a significant post-crash fire."

    William Owens told WIS-TV he was driving down Highway 302 when he said he saw a fireball go across the road.

    "I didn't know what I had seen -- it was maybe 800 feet in front of me, but as I approached it closer though, I made out a fire. By then I was able to see the tail of the jet and I recognized it as a jet," Owens said.

    Owens told the station he tried to get to the wreckage.

    "It's in flames and the fuel is running across the road and I had to cross the fuel to get to the two guys that seemed to have been dumped on the highway," Owens said.

    Owens told WIS-TV the two men were running around and pulling off clothing to put out the flames. He said he asked them if anyone else was on board the plane and they said four people were with them.

    "We turned to the jet to try and see if there was anything we could do, but immediately, there was nothing anyone could do," Owens said.
