Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker will not join the band on the Australian leg of their tour in 2013.
Barker, a former reality TV star, was involved in the plane crash that left himself and friend DJ AM severely burned several years ago.
AM died of an accidental drug overdose shortly after the accident. Barker has not flown again since.
Barker explained on his Facebook page yesterday.
Soundgarden & Pearl Jam world tour 2013?
Rumors abound that these Seattle rockers will be presenting a world tour in the new year.
Great news for fans, but just how will Matt Cameron cope? Cameron is the drummer for both bands!
Is it possible that Chris Cornell is really a mad scientist, ready to clone Cameron for the selfish needs of his band and that of Eddie Vedder? Perhaps the powers of Spoonman and the Bushleaguer have collaborated and grown another set of arms for the wiry drummer.
Either way the news of a double headliner is music to the ears.
