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.

For those who are bad mouthing Travis and DJ am. Shame on you! Are you guys digging into your pockets to donate to the other families? Are you purchasing t-shirts… come on! Because of some of some of the comments like those is why some celebrities are dammed if they do and dammed if they don’t. And , as far as I can tell his security, and personal assistant were not rich and famous. Do some soul searching before you point your fingers.

Some of you people are missing the point…Travis Barker didn’t make the t-shirts because those two particular victims were “famous” (which is not even really accurate.) He made them honoring those two men because they were close friends.

Hi
Can you please tell me who sells the black jump suits that everyone is wearing right now I love them and want one so bad.!

i agree with april. travis is stepping up in support of his friends family. the company that owned the aircraft should have life insurance on their employees specifically for this type of incident. the charter company should step up in support of their employees families. my prayers are with everyone involved with this incident.

I think what Travis is doing is wonderful. However, I agree with the others that he should remember the pilot and co-pilot also. They were not famous and I am sure not rich but they died doing their job just the Chris Baker and Charles Still. So something should be done to show that Travis and DJAM care.Maybe not a t-shirt but at least acknowledge that they also perished.

April,
You are right, Travis is doing a very nice thing. However, the one’s who are forgotten don’t have famous friends like Che & Chris do and I doubt if the pilot’s family made a t-shirt it would sell as well as the one Travis made. I think that is the point everyone is trying to make. Yes, take care of your friends, but other people also perished and their lives are not worth less than anyone else’s. No one is asking for hand outs, just fairness.

really on

so if someone had a family member who died on 9/11 and they’d like to raise money for them, they have to make a t-shirt that honors all 3000 victims?

get real.
