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 and at The Fast Life store in L.A.

Are you serious you are tired of the rich taking care of the poor. If it wasn’t for middle class people and poor people these movie stars and musicians would not have ANYTHING. We are the ones making them rich so to give back to the average person should not be a big deal to them because without “us” they would be nothing. That is the dumbest statement I have heard. Grow up. Your obviously a spoiled little rich brat who has NEVER had to work for anything and without mommy and daddy you would be nothing.

The government gave money to all of the families who died in 911 not just a few of them so before you make statements do your research.
What travis is doing is a great thing but he should acknowledge the others that died. No one’s life is more important then anothers.

Some of the comments you guys are posting just make me want to laugh at you.

At what point, from the crash until today, did Travis assume responsibilty for creating a memorial for the 2 people not his friends? He chooses to remember his friends via a T-shirt. At no point whatsoever does it make him a bad guy for not doing the same for the others.

Some of you others are have said that this whole thing smells like an attempt to get a free hand out from Travis on behalf of the 2 lesser known dead. Not once have I seen or heard anything about their family or friends complaining about the T-shirts. The only complaints come from the people on here who KNOW what Travis should be doing.

Get off his case and let him mourn in whatever way is best for him. No one has the right to tell him what to do, or make him feel guilty for not doing what they want.

Travis should be ashamed of himself. Even tho the pilots were not famous and it has no been determined who fault it was, money also should be going to everyone.

i think these shirts are a great idea! and i agree that the other victims should be remembered among them also. after all ,they died together.its not about being famous or not, or rich. its a death and it takes whomever it can.

Travis Barker truly is a good person with a big heart. I agree with some other people though, why hasn’t a fund been set up for the pilots families? They are not rich and famous, and maybe their families aren’t really sure how to set something up to raise money. They are grieving a loved one and sadly nobody seems to care about them as much as the best friend & bodygaurd. Still, I think what Travis is doing is great. Good for him.

One of the pilots was James Bland who was a retired Customs and Border Protection, Air and Marine Pilot. He might not of been famous, but he had an important job. The mission of CBP Air and Marine (CBP A&M), the world’s largest law enforcement air force, is to protect the American people and Nation through the coordinated use of integrated air and marine forces to detect, interdict and prevent acts of terrorism and the unlawful movement of people, illegal drugs and other contraband toward or across the borders of the United States.
