    So last night Perry Farrell (of Janes Addiction), Travis Barker (of Blink 182 and various other bands) Gavin Degraw, and DJ AM played in Columbia...not sure why but they did...on the same stage...

    so i get up this morning and im checking out the news...a small plane went down shortly after takeoff here last night...

    Travis Barker and DJ AM were on it...theyre alive...but in Augusta, GA at the burn center...there were 2 other passengers and 2 crew members on board...none of which made it out alive

    Authorities havent been able to determine the identities of the 4 casualties...

    wat?
    the latest has all 4 names...no one else big named like barker...said that the ATC people saw sparks coming from the plane as it was taking off, then went straight off a runway, through a fence, across a road, and ended up on a hill on the other side...crazy shit

    Yeah I saw this earlier... I hope they're going to be alright.

    Seems like all kinds of celebrities are falling out of the skies. Makes me wonder what is up.

    according to MTV news citing unnamed sources

    Barker suffered extensive burns from the waist down and was transported from a Columbia hospital to Augusta via ambulance

    DJ AM suffered severe facial burns and was transported via helicopter to the Augusta Burn Center where he is in a Dr induced coma
