    According to some sources that I can't recall at the moment:

    DJ AM has severe facial burns.

    And Travis was burned from the waist down.

    WAIST.DOWN.

    No more kids?

    This was posted on YouTube :

    "...burned below the waist, cardiac and respiratory functions are not impaired, breathing on his own, expected to survive; but with an emulsified penis."

    The penis is bad but I'm glad that he'll probably survive it.

    And possibly no more drumming. Either or both would suck in any case.

    "Both travis barker and adam goldstein (dj am) are currently being treated for second and third degree burns. Barker sufferd from burns on his torso and lower body and Goldstein sufferd from burns on his arm, and a portion of his scalp. Since both Barker and Goldstein are in overall good health and didn't suffer from any other crash related complications each anticipates a full recovery through healing and rehabilitation.
    No further statements will be made at this time and an update of their recovery may be avaliable at the end of the week via their representation."

    That's pretty fortunate if anything, what with Jerry Finn having died only a month ago.

    It's funny how people seem to only care about Travis Barker and the DJ guy.

    Four people died... I've hardly seen anyone say they're sorry for the other people across all the articles I've read on the internet about this.

    Because no one really knows anything about the 4 other people, except that they were just 4 other people.

    Yeah. And I don't want to sound rude, but these 4 people already died, while 2 others are still alive so people are probably more focused on the living ones. So what more can you do than to say 'RIP'? =/

    I wasn't ripping on anyone here, I was just sayng not a lot of sentiment has been expressed towards those who actually died. (in general, on the internet.)

    Most people only seem to care about the state of Travis Barker's tattoo's and whether he's still going to drum.

    Yeah I know you meant in general. I agree with you though, everytime I see someone's worrying about his drumming I'm thinking 'wtf, be happy he's still alive <.<'.

    well, that's probably because no one really knew who they were ..

    but there you go: "The four victims have been identified by the Lexington County Deputy Coroner. They are pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim, Calif.; her copilot, James Bland, 52, of Carlsbad, Calif.; Barker's assistant, Chris "Little Chris" Baker, 29, of Studio City, Calif.; and Barker's security guard Charles Still, 25, of Los Angeles, Calif".

    i've also read on TMZ that Chris Baker, Travis's assistant on "Meet the Barkers", got married recently and had a new baby .. that's like really really sad ..

    so again, may those four rest in peace ..

    Just an FYI, but the genitalia damage thing hasn't been confirmed by anyone. It's just a rumor.

    Best of luck to both of them and may the four that died R.I.P. What a way to go.

    UPDATE: According to the doctor attending Barker and AM, both received second and third degree burns but are expected to make a full recovery. Remarkably, they did not sustain any other injuries in the crash.

    DJ AM has left the hospital and returned to LA. Travis is still in the burn center in Georgia but doctors say both will recover fully. It is unknown though when Travis will return to LA.

    Found that on http://www.mtv.nl/ (Dutch).
