If there’s one thing that Travis Barker has proved in his illustrious music career, it’s that drumming takes a toll on the body.
On Sunday, Barker shared graphic photos of his blood-stained pants and sanguinary phalanges, which took a beating after Blink-182’s set in Manchester, England. The snap of the drummer’s left hand showed bumps, bruises, torn skin and blood-soaked mangled fingers.
Travis Barker’s hands have been to hell and back. In March, Blink-182 postponed the first leg of its highly anticipated reunion tour after Barker busted his finger during rehearsals. The percussionist dislocated the bone and tore ligaments, leading to surgery on his left ring finger.
This time around, it doesn’t seem as if the “What’s My Age Again” artist will be sidelined by his injuries as Blink-182 is scheduled to play another show in Manchester on Monday night.
Last month, Barker documented his recent health troubles.
“[L]ast week I had covid, an episode of trigeminal neuralgia, and a root canal,” he wrote in a Sept. 29 X post. “Which means I can pretty much handle anything god throws at me.”
Trigeminal neuralgia is a rare chronic pain disorder that affects nerves in the head and face, resulting in severe and sudden pain, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Health concerns have been a constant in the “All the Small Things” musician’s life over the last year and a half.
In September, the drummer’s pregnant wife, reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian, revealed she was on the mend days after undergoing “urgent fetal surgery.” She and Barker announced in June that they are expecting a baby boy.
“I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear,” Kardashian said, while assuring people that her baby was safe. “I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant.”
Blink-182 announced that it was postponing Ireland tour dates set for September because of the “urgent family matter.”
