Travis Barker, Blink-182 drummer, announced that he is currently writing a memoir. The 38 year-old musician originally played for The Aquabats, toured the world with Blink-182, collaborated with some of the best in the music industry, started a clothing company, founded a record label and survived a horrific plane crash. Barker should have more interesting stories than the amount of tattoos that cover his body. The book is expected to release in the fall of 2014.

Here's the official announcement:

This wuz my Christmas Eve present 8 years ago yesterday. My kids are my best production I’ve ever been a part of. Better than any album, beat , clothing or anything I’ve had a hand in making period. My 3 kids changed my life in so many ways and actually saved my life. Being sober for over a year has been the best awakening I’ve ever had too. I got a memoir I’ve been workin hard on and it’s turning out awesome . Its been very therapeutic for me to get this all out and into a book and hopefully it can inspire a grip of people and help many as well. It’s comin out Fall 2014 and I can’t wait to share it with ya’ll . Anyhow ….enjoy your Christmas, your kids , your family/ loved ones and holidays. Much love & continued blessings to all of u. #Blessed #Family My motto will always be hash tagged #NobodycaresGoharder (after all we only live once right) Also I’m picking the winner of my 65 Cadillac right after the holidays for those asking. Good luck to all~. #werethebarkers
