Blink-182 star Travis Barker has given his bandmates permission to tour Australia with another drummer after ruling out a trip Down Under.

The rocker admits he's still traumatised about a plane crash he survived in 2008, and is too afraid to fly.

Barker and late pal Adam 'DJ AM' Goldstein were the only survivors of the tragedy in South Carolina. Four people, including two friends, were killed.

And it seems the drummer is still too nervous to step foot on a plane - even if it means missing out on a lucrative tour.

In a Facebook.com posting on Saturday (16Feb13) he wrote, "I still haven't gotten over the horrific events that took place the last time I flew when my plane crashed and 4 people were killed, two being my best friends.

"I gave the band my blessing to take another drummer if they still wanted to do the tour without me. I hope to come to Australia again some day perhaps by ship if need be. Unfortunately, there wasn't a boat that worked with the schedule this time around. Once again I'm sorry to all the fans."
