Almost a month after Blink-182 had to cancel a string of their Las Vegas residency concerts, drummer Travis Barker shared a video to update fans on his condition as he recovers from blood clots in his arms.
In the video, Barker is seen telling his bandmates that something is wrong and his arm hurts. “I can bleed through shows, I’ve played with broken foot, broken arms,” he noted. “Something is up.” As they couldn’t get a proper medical diagnosis before showtime, Barker played drums that night.
The clip also includes the drummer talking to his doctor after taking medication for a few weeks. He was offered the good news that since the blood clots are not deep, they won’t spread to his lungs. While the doctor recommended he still should take it easy from playing, as “drumming will aggravate inflammation in arms,” he will be good to play soon.
