Former Blink-182 rocker Travis Barker has been released from hospital in Georgia - more than a week after he was involved in a plane crash that killed four others.

Former Blink-182 rocker Travis Barker has been released from hospital in Georgia - more than a week after he was involved in a plane crash that killed four others.

The drummer and his pal Adam 'DJ AM' Goldstein were the only survivors after the Learjet they were passengers on failed to clear a runway in South Carolina and burst into flames. Four passengers died in the crash, including Barker's assistant Chris Baker.

Goldstein, Nicole Richie's DJ ex, returned to Los Angeles last weekend, and is currently resting and recovering from severe burns.

And now Barker is on his way home to L.A. after being released from the Joseph M. Still Burn Centre at Doctors Hospital in Augusta on Monday.

Burn Center spokesperson Beth Frits tells People.com: "Travis is doing great and was discharged this morning. He has left Augusta."
