Travis Barker has been cleared to play drums again. Blink-182 lives!

It’s been a rough year for blink-182’s Travis Barker. Blood clots in his arms. A nasty staph infection.Canceled shows (including a lucrative Las Vegas residency). A bad accident that saw his expensive SUV totaled, followed by a lawsuit against the bus driver that drove into him.

The good news is that things are finally getting better. Doctors have now cleared him to play drums again.

Meanwhile, Travis and former blink-182 man Tom DeLonge were trolling each other on Twitter. None of what we saw should be taken as any kind of reunion/rapprochement with Tom.
