Travis Barker is relieved he can still play the drums as furiously as ever - less than two months after a plane crash nearly took his life and left him badly burned.
The former Blink-182 star was left with second and third degree burns from his feet to his waist and on both hands following a September plane crash in South Carolina, which left four others dead.
But the drummer has returned to the studio just weeks later - and is elated he hasn't lost his sense of rhythm.
Speaking on MTV's Total Request Live final broadcast on Sunday, Barker announced: "I'm already playing my drums again, and I'm already back in the studio.
"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."
