Blink-182 Drummer Travis Barker Will Release His Autobiography in November
Titled Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death & Drums Drums Drums, the book is due out Nov. 19 via William Morris. According to NME, Can I Say details Barker’s time with Blink, the drummer’s musings on fame and the 2008 plane crash of which Barker and Adam Goldstein (a.k.a. DJ AM) were the sole survivors.
Barker unveiled his new, contribution-laden song, “100,” back in July. The song is set to appear on the drummer’s sophomore solo effort, which is expected sometime this fall and will follow his 2011 debut, Give the Drummer Some.
Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus also recently revealed the band will soon head into the studio to record a follow-up to their 2011 full-length, Neighborhoods. When that album surfaces, it will mark Blink’s first effort since the departure of Tom DeLonge following the trio’s public falling out earlier this year. He has since been replaced by Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba at the band’s shows, and Hoppus said Skiba will join them in the studio, too.
