Something is in the air, clearly. Just now it becomes public that Travis Barker, the former Blink-182 drummer, may have tumor in his arm.
Barker broke his right arm Sept. 9 while shooting a music video for his new band +44's song "When Your Heart Stops Beating" from the band's upcoming album of the same name. Drumming has been cited as one of the possible reasons for the unfortunate.
It is confirmed further that doctors have ordered Barker to lay off the heavy lifting, and drumming, for at least 8 weeks. Though so, no dates had been canceled and +44 is scheduled to begin a tour Oct. 13 in San Diego.
On his mishap, Barker posted a message on his MySpace account, reading "I had every test possible to see what was going on in my arm. The MRI/X-Ray showed I'd been playing with a broken arm for 3 weeks and or possible tumor in my arm ... I've been told to eat meat and change my diet (I've been a vegetarian for 16 years) cause it's making my bones weak. I never thought I'd break a bone from playing my drums too hard/too long."
