    Small plane crash in Columbia, S.C. Developments being reported on TV. 4 dead, 2 injured. DJ AM also said to be aboard.

    AP news alert says Barker and DJ AM are in a burn unit in Augusta, Georgia. Both reportedly critical.

    The story says there were 6 people on board and 4 died. Not good odds if that includes the pilots/crew.

    Can you tell some of us who they are?

    Travis Barker was the drummer of Blink 182.

    DJ AM dated Nicole Ritchie. He's also known as Adam Goldstein.

    Perry Farrell and Gavin Degraw (sp?) also performed at the concert and may have been aboard the plane.

    Gavin was not on the plane, according to his father in the Times Herald-Record:

    Neither was Perry Ferrell, according to TMZ (based on no source):

    That's one way to get rid of those tattoos.

    I hope they pull through.

    Can't say I'm familiar with either of their work, but my thoughts and prayers are with them and those who died.

    Isn't he the one who knocked her up?

    No, that was Joel Madden of Good Charlotte.

    DJ AM is a former drug addict (crack, maybe?). He also used to weigh like 300 lbs. I think he had gastric bypass or lap band surgery.

    How much do you have to eat to be a 300-lb crack addict??

    Yeah, as I was typing that, I was struck by how bizarre that was. Maybe he got fat after he kicked. I just thought that was weird stuff. Despite his public persona and being with Nicole Richie during the "height" of her fame, he's supposedly a pretty private guy.

    Anyway, being in a plane crash is one of my biggest fears, so I really hope he and Travis pull through this. Travis Barker kinda scares me, but he came off as a good dad in that horrible "Meet the Barkers" show.
