This book could turn out to be a treasure trove for anyone curious about the most reserved member of blink-182. Presumably, the book will offer Barker’s take on the band’s drama over the years, his struggles with drug use and recent sobriety, as well as a personal look into his 2008 plane crash.
In a Christmas Instagram post of his daughter, Barker writes:
This wuz my Christmas Eve present 8 years ago yesterday. My kids are my best production I’ve ever been a part of. Better than any album, beat , clothing or anything I’ve had a hand in making period. My 3 kids changed my life in so many ways and actually saved my life. Being sober for over a year has been the best awakening I’ve ever had too. I got a memoir I’ve been workin hard on and it’s turning out awesome . Its been very therapeutic for me to get this all out and into a book and hopefully it can inspire a grip of people and help many as well. It’s comin out Fall 2014 and I can’t wait to share it with ya’ll . Anyhow ….enjoy your Christmas, your kids , your family/ loved ones and holidays. Much love & continued blessings to all of u. #Blessed #Family My motto will always be hash tagged #NobodycaresGoharder (after all we only live once right) Also I’m picking the winner of my 65 Cadillac right after the holidays for those asking. Good luck to all~. #werethebarkers
