Travis Barker Remembers His Friends With T-Shirts

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.

Nothing is stopping the pilot’s families from coming out with T-Shirts.

Stop being so negative

for those who are so offended that he isn’t recognizing the other people in the crash why don’t you send some money to their families.

The memorial t-shirts are a wonderful idea.

The naysayers should stop and consider that perhaps the pilots’ families have received donations, but the donors asked that their donations not be made public.

Don’t assume everything and everyone famous acts or thinks in a superior manner.

I have read many of the comments and I agree- What about the other people who perished. It seems like a selfish act on their part. They have the celebrity status to make a difference for the other families. Design a shirt for the two pilots who died…come on guys!

The Charter company should do for their own like Travis and Blink are doing for theirs. Charity begins at home.

First off – Gina, your comment was not logical in any sense. Regardless of whether or not Travis honored the crew, his actions surely could not be deemed “self-centered” being as he’s not profiting.

Secondly – Yes, FOUR people died. Very sad. However, DJ AM and Travis have the right to honor their friends only. It was very traumatic and many of you will never know what it’s been like to go through something like that. Give the guys a break.

Thirdly – It would be nice to see the other two victims honored as well. While the families could do something to tribute, we all know it wouldn’t be nearly as successful due to the fact that two celebrities aren’t endorsing it. They are famous and have influence, something the families of the crew don’t have.

Again, however, this is Travis’ and DJ AM’s choice, they should not be looked down on for it, it’s a nice gesture.

I agree with Wendy–the pilots’ friends/family should do things for them…Travis is doing things for the people HE knew…Great idea and I hope people buy lots of tshirts!

I don’t understand why everyone can’t just be happy that their doing something nice for the families of their dear friends that died instead of focusing on what they aren’t doing. People are so jaded…I swear.

it is soo sad

It is very sad that four people lost their lives that day. But, Travis can make shirts for whoever he wants. He is not obligated to design shirts for the other two people who died. I agree with some of the other posts. For those of you having such an issue with this you should really start sending donations to the other two families. Besides, how do you know that Travis didn’t already do that?
