Travis Barker Tells Fans "Thank You," Faces 7th Surgery

Three weeks after being aboard a devastating plane crash that killed four people, Travis Barker has a simple message for his fans: "Thank you."

The former Blink-182 drummer posted a message Saturday evening on his MySpace blog thanking his supporters and paying tribute to his assistant Chris Baker, 29, and his security guard Charles Still, 29, whose lives were claimed by the Sept. 19 crash.

Barker, who sustained second- and third-degree burns from the crash, also posted an update on his own condition, which were accompanied by a series of photos of the rocker in the hospital.
