Travis Barker and DJ AM Rock the Luxor
Travis Barker and DJ AM’s musical careers are taking off again, after the two were badly burned in a plane crash in Columbia, South Carolina, that killed four people last September.
Former blink-182 drummer Barker, 33, and 35-year-old mixmaster DJ AM (born Adam Goldstein) rocked the LAX nightclub at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Wednesday, ripping through a 45-minute set. The audience included Dr. Dre and Barker’s estranged wife, Shanna Moakler.
The show marked the first time that AM and Barker have performed together in Las Vegas since June 2008. The pair have been mounting a post-tragedy comeback of late; they headlined New Year’s Nation’s Los Angeles New Year’s Eve Party at the Lot in West Hollywood a little more than a week ago.
Barker performed shirtless, with a large scar on the small and middle of his back being the only visible indication of the ordeal he endured just a few months ago. Looks like his skin is recovering quite nicely.
The skins he mercilessly pounded on his drum kit during the show, on the other hand, took a beating they won’t soon forget.
