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.

Amazing! Just out of the hospital, from the worst type of injury, and Travis does something nice like this! I would hope that the friends of the Pilot and Co-Pilot would do the same for their families. Awesome!

First off, these pilots ,make a lot of money. Check it out! Their families are taken care of by the pilots union…

It’s not up to Travis or anyone else to help the two pilots that almost killed them, with bad judgment on take off. You can not abort a flight at that speed. No one would be dead if the pilots knew how to land a plane with a blown tire. They chose to abort take off just before lifting off. The speed was to great. Pilot error. No, I would leave it up to their family and friends to do something.

I agree…the pilots should be remembered too!! Responding to April’s comment, even if the pilots’ friends and family tried to contact the press to put together some type of memorial, they would not get any publicity. And that is because they are not famous. I applaud Travis’ efforts to memorialize his friends but Travis, DJ AM, Chris and Che were not the only ones on that plane.

I like the design and the sentiment. Both DJ AM and Travis have shone that they are good, decent men. their significant others and families have also shone their love. we need those positive examples these days. God bless them all.

The proceeds from the sales of this shirt should be shared among the families of ALL the victims. I’m sure the pilots friends and families love them no less than Chris and CHE’s friends and families love them. The difference here is that Chris and CHE have famous friends who’s star power alone can raise more money on selling tribute t-shirts than is likely of the average person doing the same, which is why their star power should benefit ALL the victims of this horrible crash as they ALL died together.

First of all none of us what Travis and Adam are going through. Second he may have done something nice for the families of the other victims. Third profits will more than likely go to all. It’s easy to sit back and judge, but the truth is none of us know. Instead of bashing him for his good deeds, give him some credit, from what I know of him, he is a kind hearted man!
