Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker says he won’t be joining his band in the upcoming Australian Tour, but you can’t exactly blame him.  He’s yet to get over his fear of flying.

Barker and his friend Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein were the only survivors of a 2008 plane crash that killed four people, two being Barker’s best friends.

Brooks Wackerman of Tenacious D will be taking Barker's place, with Travis’s full blessing when Blink 182 plays the first show at Sydney's All Phones arena on Wednesday.
