Travis Barker Gives First Interview: "I Feel Better Every Day" (VIDEO)

Travis Barker, former Blink-182 drummer, gave his first televised interview since surviving a harrowing plane crash in September that killed four others and left him with serious burns. Barker, via satellite, spoke to Damien Fahey during the TRL Finale on MTV Sunday night.

"Thanks for all the support, and this is really exciting to be a part of this show... I feel better every day."

He said he's back on drums, getting more comfortable, and stayed soft-spoken during the 2-minute clip. "I'm thankful to be able to play."
