Tim Kash of MTV News shared his thoughts on +44 drummer Travis Barker and DJ AM following news of their horrific plane crash on Friday night which have left both critically injured with burns, killing the Learjet’s other four occupants. “I’ve known Travis for a few years now. Most of the time we meet through work at shoots or events,” Kash writes, “but every now and then over the past few years we have had the chance to kick it in cities from London to Vegas. All I’ll say is this, and it’s something I’ve said many times before: Travis really is one of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. I have the utmost respect for this man, and I promise that I am not just saying this for effect or because of what has happened. I really mean it.” Read more.
