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.

I think its a wonderful idea for the memory of the people who died. I pray for their families and for Travis and DJ AM to make a full recovery.

Things like this prove how much of an amazing person Travis is.

Such a loving father and friend.

I am so glad DJ AM and Travis Barket survived the horrible crash – my condolenses go out to the families of those lost.

Wonderful idea, hopefully they keep them well stocked, I have a feeling they are gonna go fast. My prayers and thoughts are with all of them.

Yes. It is a lovely thought, but what about the pilots’ families. They’re likely the ones who need the additional financial help. They truly are the forgotten victims simply because they weren’t famous.

A very nice thing to do. The shirt looks really nice.

Yes, wonderful idea, BUT what about the rest of people who died in this horrible crash??? Why some people should be remembered and others forgotten?!!! So, STUPID idea!

i agree with everyone before the t-shirts are a nice idea, but you have forgotten the others who perished in that awful crash. Just because they were average people and not famous or near and dear to you they should be remembered as well and I think money from the sales of those shirts should go to those family’s as well.

I agreed that the others need to be remembered. But, shouldn’t their own families and friends be doing that for them?

Mickey on

nice idea but I agree with everyone else. What about the pilots families…. You know, the ones that aren’t famous or rich

It is a good idea. the shirts are great. And to those who are complaining that the others need to be remembered as well.. You are right.. HOWEVER their friends need to get up and do it.. These were Travis’ friends.. he is doing something.. let their friends and family take care of it, just like Travis and DJ AM are doing… Things shouldn’t always be handed to you.. get up and work for them. This is what Chris and Che’s friends are doing for them to honor and remember them!
