    COLUMBIA, S.C. - A hospital spokeswoman says former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and a popular disc jockey have been critically injured in a Learjet crash in South Carolina that killed four people.

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

    Hospital spokeswoman Beth Frits says Barker and DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, were at a burn center in Augusta, Ga.

    Federal officials say two crew members and two passengers have been killed.

    They're saying on the news that along with the flight crew, the other 2 occupants killed were, "Big Wigs in the Music Industry". Wonder who it could be??? I'm hearing that the drummer is critically burned. Shit..........

    Anyways, very tragic crash and hope the one's injured recover quickly. R.I.P. to those lost in this accident.

    They have id'd the deceased as Barker's 29 year old assistant Chris Baker and a 25 year old man Charles Still, as well as the pilot 32 year old Sarah Lemmon and co pilot 52 year old James Bland

    Barker and DJ AM were said to be in critical but stable condition

    terrible, just terrible

    Travis Barker is suing Bombardier Inc., Clay Lacy Aviation and Goodyear Tire and Rubber in connection with the plane crash that severely injured him and killed two of his friends.

    The suit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, was filed by Barker and the mother of Charles "Che" Still, Travis' bodyguard who died in the crash.

    In the lawsuit, Travis and Thelma Martin Still claim "one or more of the tires failed leaving tire debris and portions of airplane components along the 8,600 foot runway" ultimately causing the Learjet to crash.

    The suit alleges a "negligent attempt to abort the takeoff." The suit continues, "The pilot's decision was a breach of their duty owed to the passengers onboard and was a substantial factor in causing the crash and resultant injuries and deaths."

    The suit also alleges the plane was "defective," as were component parts including the tires.

    The suit goes on, "It's landing gear, tires, wheels, brakes, reverse thrust system, squat switches and component parts were not airworthy."

    Barker is suing for "pain and suffering, mental anguish, psychological and emotional distress and disfigurement and pre-impact fear of death and burning."

    A rep for Clay Lacy just told TMZ, "We are surprised about the lawsuit and concerned and knowledgeable about the accident. We are sympathetic for the victims but we want to emphasize we were not operating this airplane. This was not our airplane. We merely assisted the parties in chartering this aircraft with another company. We simply booked it for them."

    Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein was found dead Friday in his New York City apartment, his publicist says.

    ADAM 'DJ AM' GOLDSTEIN has been found dead in his New York apartment, after suffering a reported drug overdose.

    Police broke into his home on Lafayette Street in Lower Manhattan at 5.20pm on Friday evening (28Aug09) after they were alerted by a concerned friend who had been unable to reach him for several days, reports TMZ.com.

    The New York Post is reporting that drug paraphernalia was found in the apartment.

    Goldstein's death, at the age of 36, comes nearly a year after he and Travis Barker were involved in a plane crash in South Carolina that killed four people.

    He suffered severe burns when the Learjet burst into flames after overshooting the runway.

    The star, who famously dated Nicole Richie and Mandy Moore, had battled drug addiction in the past and revealed earlier this year he had attempted suicide while high on crack cocaine when he was aged 24

    Barker and a Crack pipe just didn't seem to agree with each other yesterday. That's what happened....

    But, I do believe he did suffer some burns from the crash, but unknown to what extent. But, he pretty much burned his internal organs up yesterday....

    Sheeze, hard to feel sorry.........

    Friend, Barker is on tour with the recently reformed Blink 182. Earlier this month, the band gave an in depth interview with Rolling Stone on the plane crash, Barker's painful recovery and the band getting back together as a result.

    DJ AM on the other hand has always had drug problems. While not quite the tragedy certain parts of the media are portraying this story as, it remains a sad tale nonetheless. Getting a second chance on life is a rare thing, yet apparently the pain the guy felt both before and after the crash was simply too much to bear.

    What was sad Chef is that the plane crash wasn't the wake up call for him as it should have been. If there is 1 thing and 1 thing only he should have learned is how delicate life is and that he was given that 2nd chance to change his for the better, but he decided to be the typical rock star junkie.

    Whatever pain he had to bear before, durning or after, there are outlets or a, "Higher Road" for people like him that he could have traveled. But, when you continue to live the lifestyle and surround your self with the ones who brought ya down in the 1st place, what do ya expect? He could have been the same guy, just a better version of himself. But, guess that road is lame and to boring.

    Death is always sad. But, I see people who have been shot, only to get out of the hospital to continue the same ole routine on the streets only to be shot again, get out and repeat. Can't count how many times I've seen people I've picked up time and time again only to loose their lives finally for being stupid and not making the lifestyle change to get them out of that enviroment. Drug dealers and users are no different. Wanna use drugs, great....do it. Wanna be a gang banger.....swell. We as a society need to quit holding the hands of adults who, "Should" know better. This is why I don't feel much pitty for DJ.

    But, you are correct, it is a sad tale Chef. DJ knew it was too, just sucks he didn't realize it.

    .02 cents is all.
