Travis Barker: I've Been Vegan Since Plane Crash

It's been three years since Blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker, almost lost his life in a horrific plane crash. Since then, Travis has made a number of lifestyle changes, including a switch to a vegan diet.

Unlike fellow plane crash survivor, DJ AM, who struggled personally and died a year later, Barker turned his life around. Perez Hilton reports on some of the changes that Travis has made since surviving the crash.

Travis says:

"I've been vegan since I got out of the hospital … It's another eye opener. It changed my life in a number of ways. I mean, I run every day now. I never ran before. In the hospital, I promised myself that I ever walked again, that I would eat well and swim every day. Before the plane crash, I was battling a painkiller addiction. For years. I can proudly say I didn't even take any pain medication after I got out of the hospital. They told me I'd be on some of the medicine for the rest of my life, but I got off all of them. They made me a completely different person. I looked Death right in the face. Unfortunately I can't do as much touring as I would like because I don't fly. It's an obstacle. I'm working on it though. I'm trying to get hypnotized, trying to talk to a doctor who retrains your brain. Maybe he'll help me fly again one day."

Go Travis!
