Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has said he is recording again after surviving a plane crash which killed four people.

Barker and his musical partner DJ AM both escaped with burns after their Learjet careered off a runway in South Carolina last September.

In his first TV appearance since the crash, Barker thanked fans for their support and said he was feeling “better every day”.

"I'm already playing my drums again, and I'm already back in the studio," he told MTV.

Asked about his return to the studio, Barker said: "It was like riding a bike. It was really exciting to know I still have my chops. It still felt good.

“I still can make it around the kit. Everything felt right, so I'm thankful to be able to play."

The aeroplane crash killed Barker's assistant, Chris Baker, and bodyguard, Charles Still.
