In light of the terrible plane crash that left Travis Barker and DJ AM badly burnt and four others dead, Barker’s Famous Stars and Straps clothing line is producing exclusive T-shirts in memory of the former Blink 182 drummer’s personal assistant Chris Baker and security guard Charles Still. The shirts were designed by pro skater and Famous team manager Felix Arguelles and Famous art director and artist Maxx “maxx242″ Gramajo. All the proceeds from sales of the shirts will benefit the memorial funds set up for Chris Baker and Charles “Che” Still. A source tells PEOPLE, “Everyone that is a part of the Famous family are really close, so Chris and Che were brothers to everyone. The shirts were made to honor them and support their families.” The memorial T-shirts will be available exclusively at Famoussas.com and at The Fast Life store in L.A.

Change the shirt! Recognize the others who died as well. Great idea!

WORST IDEA EVER! Why are there lives more important than the others that died. The crap happens all the time and it makes me sick. Everybody’s life is equal.

STUPID idea!

Beautiful idea!! For the others who lost their lives, it’s possible they weren’t friends of Travis’s. I don’t think he meant any harm in producing a shirt for his friends. He is in mourning, and lucky to be alive. GIve the man a break!

It is a great idea and doesn’t matter if Travis was friends with the pilot and co-pilot, they would not of been on that plane if it wasn’t for them. They have families as well and should be remembered and helped, none of us know their situation. The proceeds should go to everyone involved in that crash.

For those of you say that the shirts should include others: These two young men meant soooo much to the people who are doing the shirt, this is their way of paying tribute. Yes many lives have been changed due to this tragedy but the friends and families of the others lost can pay tribute in their own way. Neither Che’ or Chris were rich financially but the were rich in what they gave of themselves and the love they had for their friends and family.They have parents, grieving families and loved ones whose lives will never be the same. So the shirt is a tribute by friends/family for friends/family….Please keep your smart remarks to yourself.

COME ON PEOPLE, GIVE TRAVIS A BREAK!!! He’s doing it because he lost two very important people in his life, NOBODY said he wasn’t thinking of the others!!!

Four people died that day not just two!! How self centered certain people can be.

Thank you Wendy and April for pointing out that these shirts are perfect as is. I’m sick and tired of people looking for handouts and expecting rich people to take care of the poor.

The crash was probably the pilots’ fault… Travis knows this and doesn’t want to honor their failure.
His friends weren’t at the controls when the plane failed to fly.
